Dust Near Canary Islands - August 11th, 2011

Dust blows in a southwesterly direction off the coast of western Africa and out over the Atlantic Ocean. Visible at the far right is the border area between Mauritania (below) and Western Sahara (above).

In the upper right corner are the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago located just off the northwest coast of mainland Africa, 100 km west of the border between Morocco and the Western Sahara.
