A layer of orange sand from the Sahara covers part of Spain

Orange-tinted cars, dusty metro corridors and a hazy horizon were seen in Madrid after a thin layer of sand from the Sahara fell on a large part of Spain on the night of March 14th.

This eerie haze, shrouding the skies as a mass of hot air from the Sahara desert dumped dust, coloured the sky orange and coated streets.
