February 20, 2013
A number of thick plumes of Saharan Desert dust (light brown pixels) were blowing from Morocco toward the northwest over the Canary Islands off Africa’s northwest coast. This true-color image was acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite on March 12, 2003.
