Delhi Smog- As Seen From Space

Delhi's air quality has plunged to 'Unhealthy' category. The national capital and nearby regions are blanketed under dust and smog as the air quality got worse. These pictures captured over northern Uttar Pradesh from Sentinel RGB shows smoke/haze continuing to build up in the foothills of Himalaya. The intensification of these hotspots will lead to increased haziness over the region.

Only a few weeks back, Delhiites were cheering the city's clear weather but in no time it has gotten worse.

It is believed that the crop residue burning in the nearby states of Punjab and Haryana are contributing to polluting the air.
