Egypt – January 6th, 2013

A plume of dust blows off the coast of Egypt, near the entrance to the Suez Canal. The dust plume, which is reddish-brown in color, extends due northeastward over the Mediterranean Sea. Visible to the west of the plume are the fertile green lands of the Nile Delta. Cairo can be seen at the base of the delta, in the lower left corner.
