Smoke from a fire near Point Culver, a headland on the south coast of Western Australia, blows over the western end of the Great Australian Bight. At the time this image was taken, the wind was blowing the smoke to the south.

Also visible off the coast is a phytoplankton bloom. Although parts of the bloom are rather faint, upon opening the full image it can be seen trailing out into the ocean from the left side of the image to the right side.
