This freak weather storm was captured near the town of Onslow in north-western Australia.

It is believed the dust was whipped up by winds in the dry hot Australian deserts before heading out over the Indian Ocean

This type of massive dust storm is known  as a haboob by meteorologists. It is rare for them to be captured on camera.
