Angola and Zambia – June 26th, 2012

Smoke spreads from Zambia (upper right) into Angola (upper left) and Botwana (lower right). Namibia (lower left), remains unaffected. Although the thumbnail image shows a cloud of smoke, upon opening the full image multiple blazes can be pinpointed in Zambia and near the Caprivi Strip, or “Four Corners” region where Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia near form a quadruple frontier. Also of note in the image is the Okavango Delta (lower right quadrant) and the salty white surfaces of the Etosha (left) and Makgadikgadi (right) Pans.
