An area to watch: Sensebaugh Fire, near Casper, WY

The Sensebaugh Fire was reported to have started on 7/11/13 and have a high growth potential (inciweb.org).  This could be an area to watch with the VIIRS Day-Night Band (DNB) Radiance RGB Composite (below) in the coming days.  No bright fire (would be yellow, like the cities) is seen in the image, and there is a large amount of cloud cover (blue shades).  SPoRT and CIRA are partnering with NWS users to evaluate this type of product in night-time operations.

To monitor VIIRS DNB products in the Front Range of CO and WY see SPoRT’s Real-Time Data page.
