Canada – June 14th, 2013

Three large fires can be seen east of James Bay, Canada, releasing thick plumes of smoke that fan outwards as they blow south. In the bay, which is part of the larger Hudson Bay, melting ice and the influx of dark brown and tan sediments give the waters a variety of different tones.

    Flying back from Ireland, last Saturday, June 29, we could see 8 to 10 forest-fire smoke over eastern Canada. We have not read anything in our local paper, nor did Bing show anything.
