China, Russia, Japan - October 8th, 2011

Smoke from wildfires hangs over the China-Russia border and extends out over the Sea of Japan. Air currents cause the smoke to take on a spiral shape west of the Japanese island of Hokkaido.

Although the smoke reaches Japan, it does not appear to reach the Russian island of Sakhalin (above). The smoke is densest over Russia in the upper left corner of the image.
