The moment snow fell on the red sand in the world’s largest hot desert for the first time in 37 years. wow!!!
Snow was last seen in Ain Sefra on February 18, 1979, when the snow storm lasted just half an hour.
This time the snow stayed for a day in the town, which is around 1000 metres above sea level and surrounded by the Atlas Mountains.
“It looked amazing as the snow settled on the sand and made a great set of photos.
The snow stayed for about 24 hours and melted away…
The Sahara Desert covers most of Northern Africa and it has gone through shifts in temperature and moisture over the past few hundred thousand years.
Although the Sahara is very dry today, it is expected to become green again in about 15000 years.
