On October 29, 2003, a shift in the winds over the Southwest U.S. sent smoke from the California wildfires (marked in red at left) northeastward to Nevada and eastward to Arizona. This Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image is from the Terra satellite on the afternoon of October 29.
