The notoriously hot and dry Sahara was left coated in a layer of snow following a winter storm on Sunday.
Residents of Ain Sefra, a small town in Algeria on the northern edge of the Sahara, were amazed to discover that the hot desert landscape had become coated in a layer of snow up to 40cm deep.
It is only the third time that it has snowed in the region in almost 37 years.
Keen to make the most of the situation, some locals ventured out to take photographs, however the snow began to melt within hours, returning the desert to its more conventional orange hue.
