USA – November 25th, 2012

Visible in the upper left corner of this image is Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States in maximum water capacity. It is located on the Colorado River, southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, in the states of Nevada and Arizona.

Following the green area that extends in a diagonal band southeastward from the lake, one can see two fires burning near the center right edge of the image, in the state of Arizona. The twin fires are both releasing plumes of smoke that blow northeastward.
