Canary Islands – December 28th, 2012

Dust blows off the coast of Western Sahara and to the northwest, towards the Canary Islands. Although thick plumes have not reached the islands, one can be seen just south of Fuerteventura (right edge). The archipelago is usually affected by large dust storms several times per yer that may last up to a week.
