Red Sea – July 19th, 2012

Fierce winds kick up dust and blow it about, over Sudan, Eritrea, the Red Sea and Saudi Arabia. A thick plume can be seen blowing northeastward off the Sudanse coast, near the border with Egypt, at the upper left. In the lower part of the image, however, the wind direction appears to be blowing the dust northwest, back towards the coasts of Eritrea and Sudan (best observed in full image).
