Dust Over Arabian Peninsula - March 22nd, 2012

As the dust kicked up by the sandstorm over the Arabian Peninsula over the last week (click here for previous images) gradually settles, one can see more of the Red Sea, separating Egypt (left) and Saudi Arabia (right). The Sinai Peninsula, part of Egypt, is visible between the two countries (top center), and the Nile River can be seen through the dust, parallel to the left edge. The Suez Canal is also visible on the western edge of the Sinai Peninsula, near the green vegetation of the Nile Delta, connecting the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea.
