West Africa - May 22nd, 2012

Strong winds blowing from the northeast to the southeast push dust off the west coast of Africa. Here, the dust blows over the Bay of Arguin, on the coast of Mauritania. It does not spread northward to the Canary Islands, visible at the top right, although it does reach southward to the border between Mauritania and Senegal.
