Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows a thick haze lingering in the sky over northern Thailand.
The country has been experiencing unhealthy levels of smoke and air pollution for more than a month, as farmers use prescribed burns to clear their land for the planting season.
According to meteorologists, the poor air quality is expected to last until May.
