Satellite View of the Dust Storm over Sydney

A satellite view of the dust storm that's crippled southeastern Australia and turned the skies over Sydney orangey-red. More images after the break.

The storm started when a cold front mixed with strong winds picked up topsoil from the dried-out Lake Eyre basin and swept it across New South Wales.

Already, photographers across Sydney have taken hundreds of spellbinding photos. I think this one is my favourite so far—the contrast is amazing.



The dust storm also plunged the small town of Broken Hill, Australia into complete darkness.
