Bangladesh – December 17th, 2012

Smoky haze spreads from northern India eastward into Bangladesh, filling the lowlands south of the Himalayas and valleys along rivers such as the Brahmaputra, in northeastern India and Bangladesh (flowing westward from right edge and then southward). The Ganges River, flowing eastward across northern India, is hardly visible through the smoke, although its mouths can be seen along the Bay of Bengal.
