Stunning NASA image of fires at US-Mexican border taken from ISS

Both beautiful and a little frightening. A recent image from NASA taken from the International Space Station (ISS) showing fires on the US-Mexican border.  On the left, you can see a Russian space vehicle docking with the ISS.

There is a kind of poetry in this image: the earth, fire, a city glowing in the night and humanities genius expressed in space flight.

A fitting image for a civilisation grappling with climate change.
