Our planet is absurd. Take, for example, this crazy dust storm off the coast of Australia. It looks like something out of a Michael Bay film.
The photos were taken by Fishwrecked message board poster Boomer, located "west of False Island (Mary Anne Passage)". Other photos of the storm make it seem even crazier, and like something not of this world (though it does resemble a derecho, just with sand). [Fishwrecked via Daily Mail]
