Dust over Pakistan – June 26th, 2012

A veil of dust hangs over Pakistan, partially obstructing the view of the Indus River Valley. The valley usually appears as a large, green reversed S stretching from the Himalayas to the Arabian Sea. Also partially obscuring the land below is a layer of dotted “popcorn” clouds  by the Pakistan-India border, in the lower half of the image. In the full image, a series of wave clouds can be seen near where the Indus River enters the Arabian Sea.
