Libya – January 25th, 2013

While just one day before this image was captured, the entire Gulf of Sidra was completely covered by airborne dust (click here for previous image), here, strong winds have already cleared much of the area. Dust is now blowing north-northeastward off the coast of Libya from the western part of the gulf only, barely affecting it the eastern half of it.
