Smoke blowing over Africa - August 6th, 2009

Smoke from fires elsewhere in Africa can be seen blowing across northern Angola and part of western Democratic Republic of the Congo. The smoke blows offshore, giving the clouds near the coast a greyish-yellow tinge.

Visible although somewhat veiled by the smoke is the Kwango (Cuango in Angola), a 1100 km long river in Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It originates in the highlands of central Angola and flows generally northwards, then it makes a border between these two countries.
