The wildfire that ripped through Southern California last week, burning down homes of celebrities as it cut across Malibu, left a scar on the earth that is visible from space, according to an image released by NASA.
“The Woolsey Fire in Southern California has left a scar on the landscape so large that it is easily visible from space,” NASA said in a tweet with an image that shows burnt vegetation left by the fire.
The scarred land shown on the image appears brown, while unburned vegetation appears green, the agency said.
The image was captured by a camera on NASA’s Terra satellite, which studies the earth’s atmosphere.
As of Tuesday, the Woolsey Fire, which broke out in Southern California last week, was about 98 percent contained.
Flames from the blaze torched about 1,500 buildings — including the homes of celebrities like Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke, Neil Young and Miley Cyrus.
