Pakistan - June 9th, 2012

The extremely damaging dust storm that has been affecting Pakistan over the last few days (click here for previous images) appears to be abating. The veil of dust that previously obscured the view of the Indus River Valley (right) is now considerably more transparent. Also visible here is Pakistan’s Balochistan Plateau (center) and a dark orange desert inside Afghanistan (left).
