Iran – January 17th, 2013

Dust blowing off the coast of Iran makes it possible to observe the flow of air currents, which are usually invisible to the naked eye. Here, wind blows dust southward off the coast in parallel lines, over the Arabian Sea (right) and Gulf of Oman (left) and another air mass blows the parallel lines of dust slightly westward.
