The burn scar from the Black Forest fire in Colorado Springs, in a June 2013 false color image. Patches of unburned forest are bright red. Unburned grasslands are pink. The darkest gray and black areas are the most severely burned. Buildings, roads, and other developed areas appear light gray and white. REUTERS/NASA/GSFC/METI/ERSDAC/JAROS

A false color image shows Hemispheric color differences on Saturn's moon Rhea. This image shows the side of the moon that always faces the planet. In this image, the left half of the visible disk of Rhea faces in the direction of Rhea's orbital motion around Saturn, while the right side faces the trailing direction. REUTERS/NASA 
A false color image of the city of Ishinomaki, in northern Japan, August 2008. Water is dark blue, plant-covered land is red, exposed earth is tan, and the city is silver. REUTERS/NASA

A false color image of the burn scar from the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs, July 2012. At the time, the fire was still burning but was 90 percent contained. Vegetation-covered land is red. Patches of unburned forest are bright red, in contrast with areas where flecks of light brown indicate some burning. The darkest brown areas are the most severely burned. Buildings, roads, and other developed areas appear light gray and white. The bright red patches of vegetation near Colorado Springs are golf courses, parks, or other irrigated land. REUTERS/NASA

A false color image of the Santa Lucia Range Mountains near Big Sur, California, June 2008. Smoke from the Big Sur fire is visible. Vegetation is red, naturally bare ground is tan, burned ground is charcoal colored, and smoke is light blue. Clouds over the Pacific Ocean to the southwest are bright bluish white. REUTERS/NASA
