Russia – July 23rd, 2012

A thick cloud of smoke blows in an arched shape between Russia (above) and Kazakhstan (below). The smoke probably originates from the wildfires in central Russia that have been affecting the region over the last month, and then blows southward over Kazakhstan, where it partially obscures Lake Balkhash (lower left) and just reaches the western shores of Lake Alakol (right of the former). In the full image, plumes of smoke from individual blazes can be seen in Russia the upper right corner.
