Smoke from Alsakan fires across Northern Canada

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite observed a large pall of smoke blowing eastward over Canada’s Yukon Territory on July 5, 2004. The smoke can be distinguished from both the clouds and snow and ice in this true-color scene by its darker, gray shade. Notice also there are several red dots toward the bottom center of this image, indicating the locations of actively burning fires. This smoke was generated from the large, intense fires burning in several places across Alaska.
