Angola and Zambia – August 11th, 2012

A smoky veil hangs over Zambia (right) and Angola (left). Through the veil of smoke, several individual blazes can be seen releasing plumes of smoke in a northwesterly direction (best observed upon opening full image). The smoke appears denser and more tan in color in the upper right corner, possibly indicating fires burning more intensely or burning through a different type of material.
