Australia – October 17th, 2012

Several fires can be seen in Queensland, Australia, near the shores of the Gulf of Carpentaria. Two are visible in this thumbnail image, one at the upper left, by the border with the Nothern Territory, that is releasing smoke due southwest, and one near the right edge, that is releasing a plume of smoke that fans out as it blows to the northeast. In the full image, a third fire can be seen southeast of the second blaze.
