USA – November 7th, 2012

Fires near Houston, Texas, USA, release bright white plumes of smoke that blow southward off the coast and over the Gulf of Mexico. The fire releasing the thickest smoke plume is located southeast of Houston, near the shores of East Bay, a section of the larger Galveston Bay. Moving westward down the coast, a small plume of smoke can be seen near the shores of West Bay, also part of Galveston Bay. The last smoke plume is visible even further west, near East Matagorda Bay.
