Mexico - April 24th, 2012

Bright green and blue sediments line the coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, located mostly in Mexico. They spread particularly far offshore along the western coast of the peninsula, in the Bay of Campeche. Visible to the south and southwest, on and near the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, is smoke from multiple wildfires. While individual plumes of smoke can be pinpointed upon opening the full image, there is also a general veil of smoke blowing southwest, over the Pacific Ocean.
