Several fires were detected in northern Australia by MODIS. The fires show up as red dots, superimposed on a surface reflectance product. The image also shows the Clarence Strait, which separates the mainland from Melville Island to the north and the smaller Bathurst Island to its west. The Strait connects the more confined, bowl-shaped Van Diemen Gulf (right) to the Beagle Gulf (left).
