Thick smoke (greyish pixels) from many fires (red pixels) burning in northeastern Asia filled the skies above parts of Russia and China on September 25, 2002. This true-color scene was acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer aboard NASAs Terra satellite. The scene spans from Mongolia and Southeastern Russia (on the left) across Manchuria, China (on the right). The southern half of Russias Lake Baikal can be seen in the upper left of this image.
