Chad and Central African Republic – January 11th, 2013

Fires burn across southern Chad and the Central African Republic in the lower right quadrant of this image. The plumes of smoke from individual fires blow mostly towards the southwest, contributing to a thicker cloud of smoke that hovers over more of the region. In the full image, dust can be seen south of Lake Chad (upper left).
