In October 2017, a large dust storm darkened skies over much of Iraq and Saudi Arabia. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image of dust blowing over the two countries on October 29, 2017. The satellite observed large amounts of dust aloft on October 30 and October 31 as well.
