Haze lingered in India south of the Himalaya for several days in December 2007. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image on December 16, 2007. In this image, the haze appears as a dull gray blur south of the snow-capped mountains. The haze extends southward, thickening somewhat in the southwest. North of the Himalaya, clouds clutter the otherwise clear skies.
