Niger - December 10th, 2011

Dust blows about the Sahara Desert in Niger. Here, the bright yellow-white dust is mostly concentrated in the lower left quadrant, near the border with Nigeria, and at the center right, near the border with Chad.

Visible in the upper right corner are the Tibesti Mountains, in Chad, while the Aïr Mountains in Nigeria can be observed at the center left. Lake Chad can be seen through the veil of dust in the lower right quadrant, on the Niger-Chad border.
