Russia - May 14th, 2012

A plume of smoke blows southward off the coast of Russia, over the Sea of Okhotsk, between Sakhalin Island (left edge) and the Kamchatka Peninsula (right edge). A thinner veil of smoke is also visible over Shakhalin, blowing eastward towards Kamchatka. At the bottom of the Kamchatka Peninsula, by the left edge (best viewed in the full image) is the snow-capped Bolshaya Ipelka Volcano, an immense shield volcano.
