Upper Midwest, United States

Uploader comment: Although the skies over the Upper Midwest, United States were nearly cloud-free on a sunny mid-May afternoon, the region was sheeted by thin veil of upper level smoke from fires burning as far away as Siberia. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Terra satellite captured this slightly hazy true-color image on May 16, 2012 at 17:50 UTC (12:50 pm Central Daylight Time).
