Smoke from Western US and Canada fires across Hudson Bay

A veil of haze hangs over the Hudson Bay clouding what is otherwise a fairly clear, late-summer day. The smoke originated from vast fires burning in the western United States and Canada. The squiggly islands in the southeastern portion of the Bay are the Belcher Islands. To their right, the Nastapoka Islands ring the southeastern shore. NASA's Terra satellite captured this Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) true-color image on September 10, 2003.
