Arabian Peninsula - June 5th, 2012

Dust blows between the Arabian Peninsula and the African continent, clouding the skies over Yemen (center) and Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Somalia (left to right, below). A veil of dust also covers the Red Sea (left), the Bab el Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden (bodies of water from left to right). The dust likely originates in the Rub’ al Khali, the large, extremely arid desert in the lower part of the Arabian Peninsula.
