NASA and other agencies who oversee the satellites spinning through space have captured some remarkable images of the smoke from the fire ravaged Pacific Northwest and Montana.

The Washington Smoke Information Website,  and NASA, have taken some pictures of the layer of smoke that's kept us pinned down, made the sun a red ball, and curtailed outdoor activities.

Some of the pictures were taken at the end of August, others just a few days ago.

We're hoping the jet stream will move south from Canada, and allow some of this to blow away. Even with limited wind, and the high pressure holding it down to the earth, a lot of smoke has made it's way across the midwest even to the east coast, and folks there are seeking more colors in their sunsets.
