Dust Over Gulf of Aden - June 7th, 2012

Dust from the Arabian Peninsula, probably originating in the Rub’ al Khali desert, blows over Yemen (above), across the Gulf of Aden and over Somalia (below).┬áThe Gulf of Aden is a gulf located in the Arabian Sea between Yemen, on the south coast of the Arabian Peninsula, and Somalia in the Horn of Africa. In the northwest, it connects with the Red Sea through the Bab-el-Mandeb strait, which is about 20 miles wide (both the strait and part of the Red Sea are visible through the dust by the left edge).
