Dust by Arabian Peninsula - June 7th, 2012

Dust blows off the coast of Iran (above) and the coast of Yemen (lower left). The former is likely from a dust storm that has been raging in Pakistan over the last few days (click here for previous images), while the latter is probably from the Rub’ al Khali desert on the Arabian Peninsula, from which dust has also been blowing over the last few days (click here for previous images).
