Dust Storm Over North Africa

On February 21, 2017, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite captured this natural-color image of a large dust plume streaming from North Africa toward Europe and the Atlantic Ocean. Additional images of the storm, acquired on February 22 and February 23, are available.
