Namibia – August 18th, 2012

Several individual fires can be seen in Namibia through the general veil of smoke that covers much of the image. The plumes of smoke from the blazes are blowing in a southwesterly direction. Those near the center of the image are fanning out over a greater area than those in the upper right quadrant. Visible by the left edge is the Etosha Pan, a large endorheic salt pan in the Kalahari Basin in northern Namibia.
