Turkey and Syria - September 29th, 2011

Dust from the Middle East blows westward over the Mediterranean Sea and northward over parts of Turkey. The dust also partially obscures the Dead Sea (lower right).

The veil of dust appears densest between the shores of Turkey (above) and Syria (right), and Cyprus. However, it can also be seen spreading beyond the island nation.
