A late-spring dust storm skirted the China-Mongolia border on May 26, 2007. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite took this picture the same day. In this image, the dust storm appears as a beige blur over a buff-colored landscape, and the plume remains close to but south of the border.
