NiteFire 44, Greenlick field

As of Sept. 25, the fire is extinguished.
A large gas storage well ignited four days before this photo was taken. Southern Potter County. The camera is approximately 20 miles from the source.

Allegedly discovered by an airliner at 38000'. It burns & blooms in a remote section of northcentral Pennsylvania.
Texas crews are attempting to extinguish the fire.
The glow as from a distant city barely diminishes the starry sky. Jupiter is the brightest sky object here. A portion of the Milky Way is visible.
