The Mediterranean Sea is on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's exhibition, Beyond: Visions of Planetary Landscapes, from May 26, 2010 - May 2, 2011.  

Sahara dust blows across the Mediterranean towards Italy. Below it, smoke from forest fires in the Balkans extends in the opposite direction, across the Southern Adriatic Sea.
