Red Sea - April 15th, 2012

Dust can be seen blowing over the northern half of the Red Sea, between Egypt (left) and Saudi Arabia (right). The dust also creates a hazy effect over part of the Nile River in the lower left quadrant. Visible at the upper left is the fan-shaped Nile Delta. The grey patches of haze over the delta may indicate smoke from fires.
