Uploader comment: In late February, 2013 the Terra satellite passed over West Africa at a time when most of the intermittent dust storms had settled, allowing a stunningly clear view of a sky decorated complex pattern of clouds. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard that satellite captured this true-color image at 1150 UTC (6:50 am EST) on February 18.
