The Fontenelle Fire was first reported on June 24, 2012, burning in Bridger-Teton National Forest, about 18 miles (29 kilometers) west of Big Piney, Wyoming. By July 5, it had burned 57,324 acres (232 square kilometers), though it had not damaged any structures. The fire began south of Mount Darby and spread north on both sides of the mountain’s ridge toward Fish Creek Mountain. On July 5, the northern edge of the fire was burning the most vigorously and moving northeast.
The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on the Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite acquired these images of the affected area on July 4, 2012, when the fire was 16 percent contained. Burned forests appear red in the false-color image (top); unburned forests are green. The blue patches along the brown ridges on Fish Creek mountain and the highlands to the west are snow. In the natural color image (bottom), smoke is visible over the eastern slope of Mount Darby and on the northern edge of the fire.

An Expedition 31 crew member aboard the International Space Station, flying approximately 240 miles (386 kilometers) above Earth, captured this view of the Fontenelle fire on June 27, 2012. The fire, burning in Wyoming 18 miles (29 kilometers) west of Big Piney, was discovered on June 24. By the morning of June 28, the fire had burned 25,000 acres (101 square kilometers). By July 6, the area burned had more than doubled to 57,324 acres (232 square kilometers), and the fire was 25 percent contained.
Astronaut photograph ISS031-E-146306 was acquired on June 27, 2012, with a Nikon D2Xs digital camera using a 180 mm lens, and is provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations experiment and Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, Johnson Space Center. The image was taken by the Expedition 31 crew. It has been cropped and enhanced to improve contrast, and lens artifacts have been removed. The International Space Station Program supports the laboratory as part of the ISS National Lab to help astronauts take pictures of Earth that will be of the greatest value to scientists and the public, and to make those images freely available on the Internet. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA/JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. Caption by Adam Voiland.
