Ethiopia – February 26th, 2013

Fires in Ethiopia and South Sudan release a cloud of smoke over the area. Several individual plumes of smoke can be individuated in the full image. The smoke does not blow northeast to Lake Tana, visible in the upper right quadrant, and also does not completely obscure some of the wetlands around the White Nile in South Sudan (lower left quadrant).
