Fires in Northern Canada

Fires in Northern Canada

Several large fires (marked in red) were burning in northern Canada on July 26, and their smoke was mingling with smoke from other fires to the northwest, perhaps from as far away as Alaska. The fires pictures here are burning in the Saskatchewan Territory, and the smoke spreads eastward over Manitoba and into Ontario. At bottom center are Lakes Manitoba (left) and Winnipeg (right). This image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite.
