Fires In Alaska and Northern Canada

 Fires In Alaska and Northern Canada

Ribbons of smoke from fires in Alaska and northern Canada swirl over the Gulf of Alaska (lower left) and British Columbia (lower right) on August 15, 2004. The image is a combination of three Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images on that day: two from MODIS on the Aqua satellite, and one from the MODIS on the Terra satellite. Actively burning fires have been marked with red dots in the image.
