Day became night on Wednesday when a huge dust storm billowed across the skies of Jaisalmer in India's Rajasthan state. The moment looked ominous, as footage from the state showed a huge wall of dust engulfing towns as it approached from the desert.
The city is a major tourist attraction for its sand dunes.
Local residents watched the weather phenomenon dumbfounded from their roofs while capturing the moment.
Another video of the storm on Wednesday showed similar scenes. The weather phenomenon was in proximity to Jaisalmer Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also known as the Golden Fort or Sonar Quila.
