A very dusty day yesterday over the Red Sea. The view from NASA's Aqua Earth-observing satellite.

Dust blew over the Red Sea on May 2, 2011. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite took this picture the same day. The dust extends from the Arabian Peninsula interior across the eastern half of the Red Sea, but stops short of Sudan. Abundant sand seas, including the sand-rich Rub’ al Khali (Empty Quarter), cover much of the Arabian Peninsula, and the dust likely arose from one or more of those areas.
