Plumes of smoke

We saw those today too. There were three columns of white smoke rising from the direction of Bird Island when standing on the beach in Las Conchas. Its got all of us stumped. Unless we are seeing burns from the the San Felipe side of the Gulf...Its diffently not in the direction of Carborca.

We might not be talking about the same columns of smoke. The ones we saw were diffidently out on the water...possibly on the other side of the Gulf
When you look at Bird Island from where you're at, Santo Tomas is off to the right, and behind of Bird Island. Google Earth, then maybe you can see how when you look off to the right of the Island, you'll be looking right down the coast line.

You've got me stumped! If you're standing on the beach in Las Conchas looking towards Bird Island you are looking South East and San Felipe is the opposite direction in Baja California...

Joe, you did see that picture of the smoke that Jerry posted didn't you? From Los Conchas that would be to the right of the Island, and could very well look like it's out over the water from there.

That is the same place we have seen them on and off for a week now. 2-3 different places. It is not a mirage.

Yep. Just to expound on my earlier comment -- For many years we've been on the patio from time to time observing changes at various points on the horizon. Among our fascinating :wink: conversation: "Well they're burning the fields out east again." Or "There's that mirage out east again." They both occur. They both can look like smoke, although the mirage more often looks like land or a mountain range. Difference: The smoke moves.

Or the smoke moves while the mirages just go up in smoke..:grin:
