Venezuela and Brazil – January 17th, 2013

Plumes of smoke from fires in Venezuela can be seen blowing towards the southwest, just north of the Meta River. The Meta flows east-northeastward across the Llanos Orientales plains of Colombia, later forming the border with Venezuela. By Puerto Carreño, it flows into the Orinoco. The river is 804 kilometres (500 mi) long and its drainage basin is 93,800 square kilometres (36,200 sq mi).
