Brazil – August 26th, 2012

Fires are burning across central Brazil. Here, the upper half of the image is covered by a veil of smoke intermingled with popcorn clouds, while multiple individual blazes can be spotted in a horizontal line across the middle of the image. The fires are located near the borders of the states of Amazonas, Pará, Mato Grosso and Rondônia (clockwise from upper left quadrant). The plumes of smoke they are emitting blow in a generally westerly direction.
