NW WA fire picture

The image above is a real-time AQUA satellite image, captured on 19 July 2007. It shows the area in the West Kimberley that was to become the large fire noted in the last post. A pretty long smoke plume is seen coming from that region. The fires north of Broome and those south of Derby have quite thick smoke plumes.

In Arenhem Land, the western portion of the Top End also has a few visible plumes, streaming off to the northwest.
