Smoke Plume from CanadaForest fires across the western sections of the Canadian Province of Quebec brought a hazy, smoky day across parts of central New York and Eastern Pennsylvania on July 6th, 2002. The image below is a visible satellite image at 12:15 pm EDT. The smoke plumes are the "milky" dim, transparent areas on the image. Some are highlighted with yellow arrows. The brighter white areas, across the right hand side of the image, and on the extreme left side of the image are clouds. The speckled areas across parts of Pennsylvania are clouds. The blue arrow shows the generally wind direction and the movement of the smoke.
