Astronaut David Saint-Jacques captured from ISS Lesser Slave Lake, Alberta, Canada. The photo was taken in June 2019 when massive wildfire broke in the area.
Lesser Slave Lake is located in central Alberta, Canada, northwest of Edmonton, measuring over 100km long and 15km wide, and 11.4m deep in average. The lake is known for the sandy beaches on its south and northeast shores. It is an important staging and feeding area for tundra swans and other waterfowl and is the site of Canada’s northernmost migration monitoring facility. Due to its location on a major fly-way for migrating birds, Lesser Slave Lake is popular with birders.
