Aerosol Optical Depth image of fires in Nicaragua and Honduras from the NASA Aqua satellite

Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) image of fires in Nicaragua and Honduras from the NASA Aqua satellite, Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensor, April 27, 2008. The red areas indicate that the satellite detected high concentrations of particles in the vertical column of air between the satellite and the ground, likely due to smoke from the fires.
