Noticed a lot more sunset pictures on your Facebook and Instagram feeds this week? Expect to see more. The weird thing is it has to do with the Sahara Desert. Yes, in Africa. CNN reports dust from the Sahara is floating over the Atlantic all the way over to us in Florida. They say you don’t notice it so much in the daytime, but at night, it is what’s responsible for those photo-worthy red/orange sunsets we are seeing. It’s also helping to keep us dry and less humid. The Palm Beach Post reports that the National Weather Service in Miami expects the conditions to last through Saturday. [Source: CNN, Palm Beach Post]
I snapped these photos at Clearwater Beach this week. Might head back again tonight. Have you snapped some sunsets this week with your phone? Tag me @Q105Geno and I’ll add them below!
