Dust off West Africa - March 11th, 2012

A plume of dust can be seen west of Portugal (above) and Morocco (below), arching to the northeast and then to the northwest. Although the plume appears to come from the west, other images suggest that it originated in Africa and blew in a reversed S-shape, only theĀ  upper part of which is visible here.
