A passenger on a plane passing over Colorado captured this stunning aerial view of a dust storm on Monday. Amanda Wicks took the photo during a flight from Los Angeles to Chicago.

The Weather Channel explained that the dust storm - properly known as a haboob - was kicked up by high winds following behind the arctic front that is bringing cold temperatures to much of the country.
