Burning Man is one of the most iconic music and arts festival in the entire world. Simply nothing on its scale exists elsewhere. While larger music festivals do exist, Burning Man is by far the largest festival held in such a remote location. This, of course, causes all sorts of interesting anomalies.

The National Weather Service Reno branch uses a satellite to detect light anomalies on the West Coast of America in the hopes of finding wildfires before they grow to dangerous blazes.
