USA – November 15th, 2012

While the greyish white streaks at the top of the image are clouds of water vapor, many of the other streaks in the image are plumes of smoke from fires burning in southern Louisiana, USA. Shifting winds cause the plumes to blow in various directions. Many of the fires, best observed in the full image, are clustered in the Mississippi River Delta, in the lower right quadrant.
