Here's What This Week's Massive Dust Storm Looked Like From Space

Earlier this week, an unusually large dust storm blew its way across parts of Utah, Nevada, and California. Satellite images now show the extent of the storm as seen from high above.

The dust storm, which struck the southwestern U.S. this past Tuesday, was caused by a cold front that moved across the region. In some areas, the resulting 70 mph (112 km) gusts stirred up considerable dust, reducing visibility to a quarter mile in some areas.
