Colorado Springs, Colo. — A storm front that dropped temperatures by as much as 50 degrees in 24 hours in Colorado also created a large dust storm that was visible from space, according to KWGN.

As the Arctic air moved south, it picked up dust in the southeastern part of the state and created a Haboob.

Amanda Wicks was flying from Los Angeles to Chicago when posted this photo of the storm on Twitter.

The National Weather Service also posted a photo of the Haboob from one of its satellites.
