The National Aeronautics And Space Administration (NASA) has predicted that the deadly bushfires that are still not settled in Australia will generate enough smoke to make at least a complete circle round the globe and come back to Australia.
The space agency’s Goddard research center has stated that the smoke had already progressed halfway around Earth as of January 8 and is now crossing South America, which has made the skies hazy and is causing colorful sunrises and sunsets.
The experts from the agency further said, “The smoke is supposed to make at least one full circuit around the globe, returning once again to the skies over Australia.”
The experts from the space agency have noted that the fires in Australia were not just creating destruction regionally and have also blamed what it called the unusual conditions of heat-fused with historic dryness.
The fired reportedly began in the country in September and was caused by the period of a prolonged drought that served fires spread, leading to abnormal destruction and the deaths of an estimated 1 billion animals.
The fires have reportedly taken the lives of at least 28 people and damaged thousands of homes.
The satellite pictures have revealed clouds of smoke from the wildfires flowing away from the continent itself in the form of huge thunderstorms that can then result in new wildfires.
These winds are transmitting smoke into the stratosphere, with some quills reaching 9.3 miles or 15 kilometers from the ground level.
The experts from the agency have also said that the wildfires have changed skies in parts of New Zealand sky orange even though the country is far away from these fires.
