This Spotlight image was captured during the Marshall Fire in Colorado in December 2021. The image shows the western side of Lousiville and the northern edge of Superior, centered over the Louisville Rec Center. On the east side of the image, you can see downtown Louisville. Capella’s Louisville office is visible in the lower left corner of the image.
The image was captured through smoke, overcast clouds and heavy snowfall. Wildfires can be difficult to control and track due to a lack of access to the area and heavy smoke cover. Capella’s all-weather, 24/7 imaging capabilities can offer disaster and response teams on-demand visibility into areas impacted by fires.
