A NOAA satellite recorded flames and clouds of smoke rising from wildfires in New Mexico on May 3. Footage taken by the NOAA GOES West satellite shows smoke rising from the Hermits Peak / Calf Canyon and Cooks Peak fires in northeastern New Mexico. NOAA wrote that the GOES West satellite “detected pyrocumulus plumes” formed by fires. The Hermits Peak / Calf Canyon fire covered 160,104 acres (250 square miles) and was eliminated by 20 percent by May 4th. The Cook Peak Fire, which was eliminated by 89 percent, burned 59,359 acres (93 square miles) by May 3rd. Credit: NOAA Satellite and Information Service through Storyful
