Afghanistan and Pakistan - October 6th, 2011

A large dust storm in Afghanistan is visible as a light tan cloud in the upper left quadrant of this image. The Pamir Mountains prevent the dust from spreading further east/northeast.

To the southeast, in Pakistan, part of the Indus River Valley can be seen clearly as a wide green area traversed by tan, sediment-loaded rivers.
