Dust Storm off Libya

April 5, 2013
A thick swirl of dust hangs like a tan curtain across northern Libya and the Gulf of Sirte in this Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from the Aqua satellite captured on May 26, 2004. The dust is spreading out from the Gulf and northward toward the open waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Credit: Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
