Dust storm and wildfires seen from space

Massive plumes of smoke from wildfires in New Mexico have been caught on satellite images at the exact same moment a dust storm sweeped across Colorado.

The footage from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shows the moment three times.

Wind gusts in Colorado reached up to 97km/h (60mph) as the dust storm reduced visibility to nearly zero while the fires consumed about 283 square miles.
