Dust storm in northeast China

Uploader comment: On April 8, 2012 gale-force winds blew across northeastern China, kicking up a significant dust storm that stretched hundreds of kilometers and spread sand plumes that blew as far as the Sea of Japan. This true-color image was captured on April 8, 2012 by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite as it passed over the region at 4:45 UTC (12:45 pm China Standard Time).
