Japan and the Koreas - May 6th, 2012

A thick haze stretches between China (left) and southern Japan (right), also extending up to the western side of the Korean Peninsula. Visible through the translucent veil is Incheon Bay, whose waters are colored tan with sediments. Haze in this part of Asia is often caused by smoke from agricultural fires, smog or fog, or a mix of all there.
