Smoke from Alaska Fires

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. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite acquired this image on July 7, 2004. The image is available in multiple resolutions.
