Angola, Botswana and Namibia – August 18th, 2012

Plumes of smoke from many fires in the border area by Angola, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia can be seen, carried in various directions by shifting winds. The largest plume is located in Namibia, between the Etosha Pan (the white salt flats near the left edge) and the Okavango Delta (the inland delta that appears as a branched green pattern to the east of the former). The smoke from this fire fans out over a larger area than the other plumes.
