The huge dust storm, observed yesterday blowing in a spiralled shape over Mongolia and central China, north of Yichuan, is moving eastward. It has now cleared eastern Mongolia and is located north of Beijing.

The close-up focuses on wavelike patterns in the sand and clouds near a dense part of the storm.

In the main image, clouds associated with the storm can be seen reaching up into Russia, east of Lake Baikal.
