Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at a dust storm over the Mediterranean Sea.

Strong winds kicked up dust from the Sahara Desert and blew it over the water toward southern Europe.

This image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Terra satellite.
