Dust plumes from the Namib Desert • Earth.com

Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at plumes of dust over the Namib Desert.

The plumes were created by hot and potent mountain winds, known as “berg winds,” that kicked up the desert dust and pushed it out over the Atlantic Ocean.

This image was captured by an astronaut on board the International Space Station.
