India and Pakistan – November 6th, 2012

Hundreds of fires are burning in northwestern India, mainly in the state of Punjab. The fires are likely agricultural in nature, as farmers often set them to clear fields for planting at the beginning of the growing seasons, one of which lasts from November to April. The fires are spread over 250 kilometers (150 miles) from east to west, with smoke extending far to the southeast.
