The Amazon River runs west-east through this true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from January 21, 2003. The dense Amazon Rainforest blankets most of the scene, but the appearance of roads (network of lines near top center) and fires (red dots) indicates some land clearing is likely underway.
