USA – September 3rd, 2012

A thick plume of smoke is released from a wildfire north of the Sacramento Valley, the portion of the California Central Valley that lies to the north of the San Joaquin-Sacramento Delta in the U.S. state of California. The plume of smoke is thickest near its point of origin, but winds have also blown it westward, creating a thin, hazy veil over the area. Click here for previous images of wildfires in western USA.
