Australia fires: Smoke to make 'full circuit' around globe, Nasa says

Source: BBC

Smoke from the massive bushfires in Australia will soon circle the Earth back to the nation, says Nasa.

Massive infernos have raged along the nation's east coast for months, pushing smoke across the Pacific.

Nasa said plumes from blazes around New Year's Day had crossed South America, turning skies there hazy, and moved "halfway around Earth" by 8 January.

"The smoke is expected to make at least one full circuit around the globe," the US space agency said.

1. Wildfires in AZ and CA are

closer to home for me. The air quality warnings here in Phoenix happen more often each year.

2. Reminds me of Nevil Shute's On the Beach.

You youngsters owe it to yourselves to read that book or see the movie.

3. Not according to the "FlatEarthers".

They probably think the smoke will just float off over the horizon and into outer space.

4. I noticed

last night as the moon was rising it was orange in color. As it got higher it went away. I wonder if it could have been from smoke from the fires. I know when CA has fires we will get smoke high up in the atmosphere and the moon looks the same. By the way I live in Missouri.

9. Typically the fuller moon has an orange tint when rising.

I'm in Florida and haven't noticed any effects yet. Thanks
