Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at smoky canyons in the eastern portion of the Andes Mountains.

The smoke is coming from several wildfires in the upper part of the Yungas forests, which appear dark green due to the wet and cloudy conditions. Also visible in the lower left part of the image is Lake Titicaca.

This image was captured by an astronaut on board the International Space Station.
