A set of real-time satellite tracking images of the fire situation throughout Greece.

The red spots are active conflagrations. The gray “smoky” spots are sources of smoke concentration produced by collections of smaller fire-clusters. What is my abs don’t reveal is ubiquity of the haze covering entire country, wherever we go.
