Smoke Swirls

Posted: 11 Jul 2015 05:48 AM

Visible satellite imagery on Friday morning captured swirls in the smoke plume from Canada. These swirls are always present in the atmosphere, but we often can not see them in the cloud formations. Much like how people use tracers in a wind tunnel to see how the air is flowing, the smoke plume was doing a similar thing in the atmosphere.

Good = 25
Bad = 11
Abstain = 5
