West Africa - April 10th, 2012

Golden dust can be seen blowing off the coast of West Africa, over (from top to bottom) Mauritania, Senegal, the Gambia, and Guinea Bissau, towards the Cape Verde Islands (visible in the upper left corner of the full image). The right side of the image also appears covered by a hazy veil, seemingly from a mix of dust and smoke from fires.
