Fires in Central Canada

Multiple large fires were burning in Saskatchewan and Manitoba Provinces in central Canada on 30 June 2008, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image. Places where the sensor detected actively burning fires are marked in red; a strong wind was blowing east-southeast and spreading thick plumes of gray-brown smoke.
