Angola – August 29th, 2012

Fires in central Africa create a hazy veil of smoke that covers parts of Angola, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. These fires are likely agricultural in nature, set by farmers to clear land for planting new crops. Some smoke is also visible in the lower part of the image, near the Botswana border and the Okavango Inland Delta.
