Korea - June 21st, 2011

Smoke hangs in the air over northeast China and part of North Korea, just northwest of the Korean Peninsula, in East Asia.

The Korean Peninsula extends southwards for about 684 miles (1,100 km) from continental Asia into the Pacific Ocean and is surrounded by the Sea of Japan (East Sea) to the south, and the Yellow Sea to the west, the Korea Strait connecting the first two bodies of water.
