Haze (smoke?) plume over the UK

17 July 2015 1800z
An elevated haze band over the UK can be observed on this vis satellite
image for 1800z, and looking out of my window towards the NW, it is clearly
evident in the sky, turning the blue to a grey colour.
Looking back to the 0600z image today, (use the back button at the top of the image)
the plume is very evident over the Atlantic, and seems to have its origins over
North America, so is probably the result of forest fires, possibly in Canada.
