Canada – July 13th, 2012

A veil of smoke hangs over Hudson Bay, Canada, and the Belcher Islands (below center). The Belcher Islands are an archipelago in Qikiqtaaluk Region, Nunavut, Canada. Located in Hudson Bay, the Belcher Islands are spread out over almost 3000 km2. The smoke is probably blowing northward from fires near the border between the provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan (click here for more images).
