Democratic Republic of the Congo - August 5th, 2010

The left side of this image of the Democratic Republic of the Congo appears slightly hazy due to smoke from fires. The center is partially covered by clouds, while on the right side several lakes are visible along the DRC’s border with Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi (top to bottom).

These lakes are (from top to bottom): Lake Albert and Lake Edward, on the DRC-Uganda border, Lake Kivu, on the DRC-Rwanda border, and the northernmost end of Lake Tanganyika, on the DRC-Burundi border. Partially visible at the right edge, in Uganda and Tanzania, is Lake Victoria.
