Libya - April 28th, 2012

A plume of dust blows off the coast of Libya, over the Gulf of Sidra. The dust is blowing off the western side of the promontory of Boreum, also known as Ras Teyonas, over the eastern part of the gulf. While most of the image is covered by the sands of the Libyan Desert, visible at the bottom edge is the darker brown Haruj Volcanic Field.
