The photo of the effects of the natural disaster was captured from space by Luca Parmitano, an astronaut from the European Space Agency.

Bushfires have already burnt more than 5.2 million hectares in NSW and 1.3 million hectares in Victoria this fire season.

"An vast ash cloud covers Australia as we fly toward the sunset", Parmitano tweeted Monday (Jan. 13), showing a thick cloud of dust and smoke covering the desert.

The review of 53 papers published since the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report in 2013 was carried out in light of the devastating Australian fires by scientists from the University of East Anglia (UEA), Met Office Hadley Centre, University of Exeter, Imperial College London and CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere. NASA is tracking smoke spreading around the globe, which Parmitano could easily see from space. More pictures from Parmitano showed the dust streaming over the ocean near Australia.

More than 11 million ha of Australian forests and farmlands have been scorched since the fires began last September, several months before the traditional start to Australia's summer fire season. "Our hearts and thoughts are with you".

Thunderstorms induced by the wildfires are accelerating the smoke plume in its path around the world.

'See you soon, neighbour': You will officially return for a third season
News of the renewal comes less than three weeks after the release of Season 2 , which dropped on the streamer on December 26. It's an unfortunate truth, but some people won't love you until you force them.

"The smoke is expected to make at least one full circuit around the globe, returning once again to the skies over Australia". "Once in the stratosphere, the smoke can travel thousands of miles from its source, affecting atmospheric conditions globally".

Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano shared this image taken over Australia on January 13, 2020.

Australians are quickly learning about the different types of clouds that accompany wildfire smoke plumes.

The smoke is having a dramatic impact on nearby New Zealand, which has experienced severe air quality issues and a darkening of the colour of the snow on the mountains.

These clouds are so big that they've created their own weather patterns, according to NASA. NASA astronauts on the International Space Station are closely monitoring and photographing the fires as Australia continues to burn.

"As the hot air rises and spreads out, it cools, causing water vapour to condense and form clouds".
