Red Sea – August 30th, 2012

Dust blows across the southern half of the Red Sea, appearing thickest below the Dahlak Archipelago, off the coast of Eritrea. Due to the wide spread of the dust cloud across the sea, it is difficult to discern whether its point of origin is the Sahara Desert, on the African continent, or the Rub al’Khali desert, on the Arabian Peninsula, or a mixture of the two.
