June 12, 2007 - Dust Storm Over the Aral Sea
February 18, 2008
Dust blew off the coasts of Sudan and Eritrea on June 7, 2007. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) flying onboard NASAï¿½s Aqua satellite took this picture the same day. This image shows the tan plume of dust billowing off the arid land surface and over the Red Sea, forming an arc that heads southeast. Overhead, opaque white clouds clutter the sky.
