China – November 10th, 2012

A dust storm has been affecting the Taklamakan Desert since early November (click here for previous images). Here, the dust appears to float in the air primarily over the western half of the desert, almost completely obscuring geographical features such as the Khotan River, which can usually be seen as a green line crossing the desert from south to north.
