Burning Oil Tanks in Libya


As a teaser for the upcoming part two of my Sentinel-2 data review:

This image is based on Sentinel-2 data from January 5 this year. See also this NASA page for more information.

Note the strong red parts are not fire, these are artefacts due to the non-synchronous recording of the different spectral bands combined with a fast moving object. You can see similar effects with airplanes in satellite images with many satellites.
