Residents in Phoenix, Arizona experienced a large sandstorm, or haboob, earlier this week. It looks big and scary, but that didn't stop some intrepid photos from making some great photos of the weather.

Check out some amazing photos below:

A massive wall of dust spreads out over Phoenix and Paradise Valley:

To give the scale to this wall of dust, the mountain at the left edge of the photograph is Piestewa Peak at 1,176 ft (358 m), and the 3rd highest point in Phoenix, Arizona. This photograph was taken from the rooftop of a 17 story building.

This is the wall of dust coming towards the front door about 15 minutes ago with 69 mph winds. The house got covered in it.
