Namibia and Angola – April 29th, 2013

A cluster of wildfires can be seen just north of the border between Angola (above) and Namibia (below). While other fires can be seen scattered about the region, indicated by red and yellow markers here, the cluster of fires near the border is releasing a thick cloud of smoke easily observed in the image thumbnail. Also of note, by the bottom edge, are the white salt flats of the Etosha Pan.
