Saudi Arabia - December 27th, 2010

A faint plume of dust blows off the western coast of Saudi Arabia and over the Red Sea. The plume is just north of a cluster of islands near the town of Hanak in the province of Tabuk.

Northeast of this dust plume, surrounded by dark brown rock is the Hala-‘l Badr volcano. The volcano itself is the dark brown point surrounded by light tan terrain between the two main ridges of dark brown mountains.
