Russia and Japan- June 26th, 2012

Visible in the upper left quadrant are wildfires in Russia. Individual blazes are best observed in the full image, where they can be seen releasing plumes of smoke towards the north. The smoke from these plumes contributes to a cloud of smoke and haze that covers much of the top portion of the image and lines the coast of Russia, northwest of Japan.
