Libya – March 7th, 2013

A large cloud of dust blows off the coast of Libya and over the Mediterranean Sea. Northwest of Benghazi, the second largest city in Libya, the dust was thick enough to completely hide the ocean surface below. To the west, over the Gulf of Sidra, the dust is less thick. The dust likely originates from the vast sand seas that cover much of Libya’s interior.
