Mexico and USA - June 21st, 2011

Several fires can be seen in this image of USA and Mexico. One particularly large plume of smoke can be seen near the border in the upper part of the image, while another is visible due south of it in Mexico.

On the left side of this image, the Colorado River can be seen releasing sediments into the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez). Parts of the sea near the Baja Peninsula appear silvery in color due to sun glint.
