Russia – July 13th, 2012

Fires in Russia, north of the border with Kazakhstan, create a large swath of smoky haze. One large fire can be seen near the image center, its plume of smoke billowing northeast and then curving to the east and the southeast. Smoke is also blown to the west, towards the Volga River, which is visible as a thick blue band near the left edge.
