Smoke from Alaskan Fires Across Hudson Bay, Canada

April 5, 2013
A light grayish brown haze is sweeping over the ice-covered Hudson Bay from intense fires burning in Yukon Territory and Alaska to the west. The fires have been burning since mid-June, and in the past two weeks, have blanketed much of Alaska and parts of Canada with thick smoke.
