Mauritania and Senegal - May 18th, 2011

Dust from the Sahara Desert blows off the coast of Mauritania (above) and Senegal (below), over the Atlantic Ocean and towards the Cape Verde islands (left edge).

Visible below the veil of dust and sand is the Bay of Arguin, in Mauritania, the greenish bay in the upper part of the image, and the Senegal River, appearing as a green line near the center of the shoreline.
