The wildfires in the western U.S. have produced a smoke cloud that covers almost 1 million square miles and has traveled 1,300 miles, as shown in the above NASA satellite image.

The cloud was clearly visible from 1 million miles away and so thick that it obscured the view of California and the northern Pacific Ocean, as seen in the below images.
