India and Bangladesh – December 4th, 2012

A band of smoke floats across this image, parallel to the Himalayas. The smoke appears thicker to the west, closer to the area of origin: fires in northwestern India. Although thinner, the cloud of smoke also reaches eastward into Bangladesh. The Ganges River becomes visible crossing northern India into Bangladesh as the smoke thins. The Brahmaputra River can also be seen flowing westwards and then southwards from the center left edge.
