Russia - May 17th, 2012

A long plume of smoke blows over Russia and China, and near the Mongolia border, first southward and then due eastward, then once again due southward, creating two abrupt right angles along its path. The smoke may be coming from fires near Lake Baikal, in Russian Siberia (click here for images of these fires).
