Australia - October 4th, 2011

Wildfires burning in arid central Australia release a thick cloud of smoke that is being blown southward. The fires originate in the dark, rusty red area in the center of the image.

Although the smoke billowing from them appears greyish tan in color, thus partially blending in with the surrounding landscape, it can be observed quite clearly and in great detail in the full image.
