NASA released a photo of the Quebec town taken on Saturday at 2:59 a.m., after a train carrying crude oil derailed, sparking explosions and a fire. The space agency also compared its image of the fire to a photo taken the Thursday before.
The images were taken using the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite on the Suomi NPP satellite. Clouds obscured the photo taken Saturday, NASA noted.
