Western Wildfire Smoke Has Drifted Over the Atlantic

Posted September 1, 2015

Smoke from the treacherous western wildfires of both the U.S. and Canada has wafted across country and out to sea.  In this natural-color satellite image collected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Terra satellite on August 29, 2015, remnants of the smoke are swirling out above the Atlantic Ocean.  Prince Edward Island can be seen in this image as well as New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
