Red Sea – August 11th, 2012

Sand blows over the Red Sea (upper left quadrant), between Eritrea (west) and Yemen (east). While the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait appears mostly dust-free, a plume of dust and sand can be seen blowing off the coast of Somalia and over the Gulf of Aden in the lower right quadrant.
