Angola – July 7th, 2012

Hundreds of fires continue to dot the terrain across Angola (left), Zambia (right) and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (above); previous images of fires in this region can be seen here. While many individual plumes of smoke can be observed, the fires also create a general smoky haze that looms over the left side of the image. Most of these fires are likely agricultural in nature.
