China - May 19th, 2012

In this image, a hazy veil stretches from northeastern China and the Bohai Sea (lower left), across the northern part of the Korean peninsula, to eastern Russia (top right). This haze may be caused by smog, as is often the case over northeastern China, or by wildfires currently ablaze in Russia, or a combination of the two.
