    On Dec. 7, NASA’s Terra satellite took a set of aerial photos of China smog, as reported by Space.com. The greater part of China in the images was covered by a thick haze. The haze extended from Beijing to Shanghai—approximately 780 miles. The Air Quality Index (AQI) read 480 in Beijing and 355 in Shanghai, as published by the U.S. Embassy in China.

    According to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing’s webpage, AQI readings above 300 are marked “Hazardous,” and have the most devastating effects on health. In the following images from NASA, clouds and fog are in white, and the haze is in gray.
