Australia- August 3rd, 2012

Plumes of smoke from fires in Arnhem Land, Northern Australia, blow towards the west-southwest. While most of the fires are clustered just left of the center of the image, a plume of smoke can be seen near the coast at the upper left. The coast is lined by sediments, particularly in the lower right quadrant opposite the island of Groote Eylandt.
