Dust lingered in the skies over the Persian Gulf on May 18, 2007. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite took this image one day after a dust storm started over Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iran, and Iraq. In this image, buff-colored plumes of dust sweep from northwest to southeast over the water.
