Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows thick smoke plumes produced by fires in north-central Russia.

Dozens of large wildfires are burning in a remote part of Krasnoyarsk Krai, north of the Angara River and Boguchany.

The image was captured on July 12, 2019 by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite.
