Image Caption: Late spring fires in the boreal forests in the Russian far east are annual occurrences. Prior to the NASA-Mir missions, NASA has had little coverage of this event. Photography of these fires during Mir 21 (NASA 2) and Mir 23 (NASA 4) provided a first view of the extent of these fires. These fires are burning in a region just southeast of Lake Baikal, near the Mongolian border.
