National Weather Service identifies fires of Burning Man on satellite radar

With Burning Man torching it’s most iconic structures this past weekend, the final effigies bring closure to festival goers and mark one last celebration of the festival’s transformational culture. According to the Reno branch of National Weather Service (NWS), that’s not all the fires of Burning Man brought to light this year.

The NWS uses satellite-equipped technology to track light anomalies on the West Coast, with the goal of detecting wildfires before they become potentially disastrous. Over the weekend, their satellites pinpointed Black Rock City as a site of potential wildfire due to an inordinate amount of light radiating from the fires of Burning Man.

Stay tuned for more Burning Man news as the week long affair draws to a close this weekend.
