Dust Over Arabian Peninsula - March 24th, 2012

Although the dust storm that has been moving sands all about the Arabian Peninsula and rest of the Middle East over the last week finally appears to be subsiding (click here for previous images), a thin veil of dust can still be observed over the northern part of the Red Sea, the Sinai Peninsula, and the eastern Mediterranean Sea (from bottom to top along the left edge). The dust over the Mediterranean does not quite reach the island nation of Cyprus, also visible by the left edge.
