Where Europe meets Asia, the Caucasus Mountains stretch from the Black Sea in the east to the Caspian Sea in the west. In this true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) captured on November 23, 2002, by the Aqua satellite, the snow-capped peaks of the Caucasus stretch through the center, and numerous fires (red dots) dot the plains and foothills to the north.
