Almost 4 acre wildfire burns near Big Lake Saturday night

Those canisters then deployed turquoise and red vapor into the upper atmosphere, forming artificial clouds in vivid colors visible from the ground for hundreds of miles. They were visible along the mid-Atlantic coastline from North Carolina as far north as NY, and could be seen as far west as Charlottesville, Virginia, according to NASA.
When all was said and done, the mission was rescheduled numerous times, nearly all of which were due to weather conditions not being optimal.
