India – November 18th, 2012

Smoke from agricultural fires continues to hang over northern India and the Pakistan border  (click here for previous images). Here, the smoke appears thickest over northern Pakistan, over the Indus River, whose green valley is mostly obscured. Visible in the upper right quadrant are the peaks of the Himalayas, preventing the smoke from spreading further northward.
