West Africa - May 23rd, 2012

Dust blows off the coast of Western Sahara (above) and Mauritania (below) in this image of West Africa. The dust blows due southwestward over the Atlantic Ocean. North of the airborne sands are the Canary Islands, just off the coast of Morocco and Western Sahara. The loose remnants of spiralled von Kármán vortex streets can be seen in the clouds southwest of the islands.
