Central Africa – June 1st, 2013

Hundreds of fires can be seen west of Lake Tanganyika (above) and Lake Malawi (right center), in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (upper left quadrant) and Zambia (lower left quadrant). Red markers identify the locations of the individual fires, although many individual plumes of smoke can also be discerned, mostly blowing towards the west.
