The wildfires ravaging southern California are even impressive from 240 miles above the Earth. NASA astronaut Ed Lu took still photographs of the fires through the windows of the International Space Station Sunday.

The photos are available on the Internet at:

The fires in the San Bernadino Mountains were burning out of control at 2 p.m. EST Oct. 26, when Lu snapped the images. Astronauts aboard the Station take hundreds of photos of Earth during their stay on the orbiting research complex. Information about Earth photos taken by astronauts throughout the history of space flight is available on the Internet at:
