Almost every year, prevailing winds bring fine dust and sand from the Sahara desert to southern Europe. If there is a particularly large amount of sand in the air, this causes moisture vapour to cling to the particles and create mist and cloud. The skies turn vaguely orange and the sun is often blocked to a certain degree, causing unusual light and occasionally dramatic effects.
