Red Sea - April 15th, 2012

Dust can be seen blowing over the Red Sea (left) and the Gulf of Aden (lower right), connected by the Bab-el-Mandeb strait. Upon opening the full image, patterns from air currents can be seen in the dust, in the form of V-shapes around islands in the middle of the Red Sea, and wavelike patterns near the coast of Eritrea.
