Fires and Smoke in North Central Europe

February 6, 2013
These images of northern Eastern Europe and western Russia show scores of fires filling the air with smoke in mid-September 2002. At upper left is the Baltic Sea, which is almost completely hidden by smoke on September 9. A few days later, the skies had cleared, but the fires (indicated with red dots) were still burning. These images were captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua and Terra satellites. Credit: Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
