Australia - June 9th, 2012

Plumes of smoke from fires in Australia’s Northern Territory blow towards the northwest. Most of the fires are burning near the coast, and there are two main clusters: to the east, in Arnhem Land, near the Gulf of Carpentaria, and to the west, near the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf. Such blazes are typical in the region at this time of year, as the dry season runs from May to October.
