This week’s Plane & Pilot Photo Of The Week is a devastating one—a satellite image courtesy of NASA that shows great extent of the smoke created by the dozens of active fires burning in the Western United States.

The photo shows that smoke reaching at least 500 miles from the California shore. There are literally hundreds of fires burning, at least 370 in California alone.
