OMAN - JULY 18: Dust blows toward the southeast, over the island of Jazirat Masirah. Near the coast of mainland Oman, the dust forms distinct plumes. Farther from shore, it fans out and forms a thin, nearly transparent veil. A long line of small clouds fringes the eastern edge of the dust veil, with clearer skies east of that cloud line.In the west, cloud and dust-free skies allow MODIS a view of the sand dunes of the Arabian Peninsula's Empty Quarter, or Rub' al Khali. Unperturbed by winds in this image, the Empty Quarter dunes resemble a giant fingerprint. (Photo by NASA/SSPL/Getty Images)
