Fires and Smoke in Siberia

March 29, 2013
In the forests and tundra of eastern Russia, fires have been burning off and on for weeks. This smoky image of the region was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite on August 15, 2003, and shows active fires marked with red dots.
