The Aqua MODIS instrument captured this true-color image of a dust storm in Pakistan on April 26, 2003. The plume of dust blows south and eventually dissipates over the Arabian Sea. Just visible in the northwestern corner of the image is southeastern Afghanistan, and in the southeast corner is a small part of western India. The Pakistan-India border shown here lies in the Indus River Valley, an area that has cities dating back to 3500 BC.
