Uploader comment: Strong winds once again carried a huge veil of sand across West African, then hundreds of kilometers over the North Atlantic Ocean in late January, 2013. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured this true-color image on January 31 as it passed over the region.
