Angola – July 3rd, 2012

A cloud of smoke caused by fires across Angola hangs over the upper part of this image of Africa. Visible in the full image are dozens of individual blazes and plumes of smoke. Visible in the lower part of the image are bodies of water such as the broom-shaped Okavango Delta (center of bottom edge) and Lake Kariba (lower right edge), on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border, as well as the white salt flats of the Etosha Pan (lower left edge), in northern Namibia.
