From above, the sandstorm looked like an ocean storm on a brown sea. Instead of water, sand and dust were thrown about by the brutal wind. Mountains and valleys of this planet were invisible, engulfed by the violence of the storm. Entering the storm, a witness would be surrounded by flashes of lightning created by the dry air and the friction of the sand. Closer in the witness would see one of the humans, battered by the storm, crawling on the top of a pyramid that once stood above a city, now buried by the sands of a desert.
The human was struggling to find shelter in the rotted ruins of a wooden boat which incongruously lay on top of the pyramid. The human was unable to find the boat in the sandstorm. Lightning flashed around her, but it only showed more sand. The human was lost, exhausted, and near death.
