Dust Over Somalia - June 6th, 2012

Dust blows from the Arabian Peninsula, probably originating in the Rub al Khali desert, across the Gulf of Aden, to Somalia. While most of the terrain in Somalia is obscured by the airborne dust, the dark ridge of the Surud Mountain Range appears as a dark greenish brown line parallel to the northern coast of Somalia on the “Horn of Africa”.
