A streamer of tan dust blows out from the Sahara Desert in northern Algeria, shown here in this true-color Aqua MODIS image from December 6, 2003. The dust casts a slightly opaque veil over the Balearic Islands of Majorca (top center) and Ibiza (upper left, southeast of Majorca), and even reaches to the shores of southeastern Spain (upper left edge).

Along the coast of Algeria, blue-green swirls in the water indicate the presence of marine life (such as algae and/or phytoplankton) and sediment. Algiers, the capital city of Algeria, is located on the western side of the small round bay at image center.
