Bangladesh – December 18th, 2012

As smoke blows southward, across the mouths of the Ganges River, in Bangladesh, and over the Bay of Bengal, it takes on a striped appearance. These rows of parallel lines are likely due to different wind speeds at different altitudes that stretch the smoke in lines along the wind direction.
