Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at snow cover in eastern Europe and Russia that has been tinted orange. Orange snow in eastern Europe shown in image above.

Strong winds kicked up large amounts of dust from the Sahara Desert that blew across the Mediterranean Sea and fell on Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Moldova, and Russia, turning the snow a slight orange color.

This image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Aqua satellite.
