Saharan Dust off Western Europe [Photo of the Day]

The image below was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite on April 8, 2011, and shows the dust which had hovered off the coast of Portugal two days earlier now moving toward the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The dust plume stretches from Spain to Ireland, as it mingles with the clouds over the emerald isle.
