The Republic of Cabo Verde in the Atlantic Ocean


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Earth from Space series and features a look at the Republic of Cabo Verde.

Cabo Verde consists of 10 volcanic islands in the Atlantic Ocean located 350 miles west of the Cape Verde Peninsula in West Africa.

These images were captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-3A satellite and also reveal a considerable amount of dust being kicked up by the wind and carried over the ocean.
