India and Pakistan – November 13th, 2012

As fires continue to blaze in northern India  (click here for previous images), smoke drifts across the border with Pakistan and hangs over the Indus River Valley. The valley is partially visible through the veil of smoke, appearing as a thick, greenish band. In the upper right quadrant, the Himalayas can be seen, providing a barrier that prevents the smoke from spreading northward.
