Dust blew off the African coast and over the Mediterranean Sea on June 9, 2007. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image the same day. In this image, the opaque tan dust plume billows off the coast, along the Libya-Egypt border, in a shape vaguely resembling a giant inverted teardrop.
On May 14, 2004, the morning overpass of the Terra satellite over the Persian Gulf captured this image of a large dust storm spreading a veil of dust over the water and the countries surrounding the shores: (clockwise from top left corner) Iraq, Iran, United Arab Emirates, Saudia Arabia, and Kuwait.

Dukono Volcano on Halmahera, Indonesia, released a plume of ash and/or steam on December 5, 2006. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) flying onboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image the same day. In this image, Dukono’s ash plume peeks out from under fluffy white clouds clustered over the volcano’s summit.
Just weeks after taking a beating from Typhoon Man-Yi in mid-July 2007, Japan’s southern islands were visited by Typhoon Usagi in early August. Although not as strong as Man-Yi, Usagi still forced the region to cancel air traffic and ferry services, and it left tens of thousand of homes without power, said news reports.
