South Sudan and DRC – January 12th, 2013

Smoke from numerous fires in South Sudan and the northeastern Democratic Republic of the Congo blows southwestward, contributing to a cloud of haze in the lower left quadrant. Another fire, separated from the cluster to the southwest, can be seen in South Sudan, east of the Jur River (also Sue River) and Sudd wetlands. About 485 kilometres (301 mi) long, the river flows north and northeast, joining the Bahr el Ghazal River on the western side of the Sudd wetlands.
