Russia – July 13th, 2012

A band of thick smoke crosses the central and lower parts of this image of Russia. Visible at the top of the image is the Buor-Khaya Gulf or Buor-Khaya Bight, one of the most important gulfs of the Laptev Sea. Visible entering the gulf on the left side is the Lena River, which can also be seen curving downwards across the image, until it is covered by the thick cloud of smoke in the lower left quadrant.
