Angola – July 5th, 2012

A smoky haze covers most of this image, obscuring the Angolan terrain below (click here for previous images). Amidst the smoky veil, hundreds of individual plumes of smoke from fires can be observed. Most of these plumes are blowing towards the east. The upper part of the image is further obscured by a layer of dotted “pop-corn” clouds.
