On August 4, 2003, fires (red dots) continued to burn across Portugal (left) and Spain (right), but the large cloud of smoke seen on the previous day had cleared. This false-color image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite on August 4, 2003. Vegetation is bright green, and burned areas are deep reddish brown.
