Iran and Pakistan - February 8th, 2012

Close-up

What may be dust or smoke intermixed with clouds (which tend to form around particles in the air) is visible off the coast of Iran (left) and Pakistan (right) in this image. In the close-up, ripples from air currents can be observed in the cloud.

Visible near the right edge is the Indus River flowing downwards from the Himalayas and into the Arabian Sea. Visible by the top edge in the upper left quadrant are desert dunes in the Kandahar Province of Afghanistan.
