United Kingdom Haze

In mid April large amounts of dust from Africa plus other aerosols passed over and around western Europe. Some of that haze is visible in the view of the United Kingdom at right which was collected on April 18, 2003.

What appear to be large smoke plumes originating in England and Scotland may also be contributing to the general haziness in the region.
