Russia – June 28th, 2012

Multiple plumes of smoke from wildfires west of Lake Baikal (visible in the full image) can be observed in the upper part of the image. While the plumes blow towards the southeast, a cloud of smoke also spans the image in the shape of a band across the middle. (Click here for previous images of wildfires in Russia). Visible near the bottom edge is Lake Khövsgöl, a fresh water lake that is the largest body of water in Mongolia by volume, and the second largest by area.
