Russia - May 16th, 2012

Fires by the southern tip of Lake Baikal release a cloud of smoke over Russian Siberia. Although multiple blazes can be observed both north and south of the end of the lake, the fires to the south are releasing more smoke. In that area, strong winds have also carried the smoke further afield, reaching across a great distance towards the bottom edge of the image.
