Australia - March 31st, 2011

Smoke from a fire near the coast of Western Australia blows offshore on the left side of this image. In the full image, the plume can be seen extending further out over the ocean and arching northward.

Also of interest are the whitish areas in the upper part of the image, evidence of the lakebeds of intermittent salt lakes. The largest of these is the “M-shaped” Lake Barlee, near the top edge.
