Greece covered in smoke - The photo from the International Space Station


The International Space Station saw Greece under the thick smoke from the fires in Evros and Rhodope.

The passage of the Station over Greece took place on August 23 at 14:18. The Station flew at an altitude of about 400 kilometres, with its trajectory taking it from Florina to Rhodes.

The weather was relatively straightforward, but smoke was evident in Macedonia (after 0:35 in the video) and Thessaly (after 1:10), but also in Evia. The image clears over the Cyclades and the Dodecanese.

From the point where the Station's camera is, you cannot see Attica or Boeotia, where there are large fronts.
