Veil of Smoke Over China South of Beijing – October 11th, 201038.6N 116.1E
Below some cloud cover, a thick veil of grey smoke continues to hover in the air over eastern China. The smoke is being released by fires burning across the North China Plain that are most likely agricultural in origin.
Upon opening the full image, the cities of Beijing and Tianjin can be seen at the top, near the Bohai Sea. Tianjin is situated near the coast, while Beijing is located further inland, to the northwest. The smoke has not yet blown northwards over these cities.
