Mexico – March 5th, 2013

Fires can be seen burning in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. The fires are situated near a series of greenish lagoons by the Pacific Coast. Some smoke can also be seen trailing northward, over the Atlantic Coast (upper left quadrant). The bright teal color of the waters in the upper right quadrant is due to sediments seeping out of the Términos Lagoon, by the base of the Yucatán Peninsula.
