Mexico - May 13th, 2012

Fires continue to burn parallel to the western coast of Mexico, near the mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental (click here for images captured earlier this month). Here, clouds have formed above the mountains, making it difficult to discern the individual blazes; however, the source of one large fire can be observed in the upper left quadrant. Smoke from the fires blows southwestward, over the coast, creating a veil over the southern part of the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez) and a section of the Pacific Ocean.
