Bizar! Voor het eerst weer sneeuw in de Sahara sinds 1976. En zo ziet dat er uit.

Het komt maar heel zelden voor. Dus amateurfotograaf Karim Bouchetata was maar wat blij toen hij de plaatjes kon schieten:

“Everyone was stunned to see snow falling in the desert; it is such a rare occurrence. It looked amazing as the snow settled on the sand and made a great set of photos.

“The snow stayed for about a day and has now melted away.”

England is not set to have a white Christmas - but SNOW has fallen in the SAHARA desert for only the SECOND time in living memory. Amateur photographer Karim Bouchetata took incredible pictures of snow covering the sand in the small Saharan desert town of Ain Sefra,Algeria, yesterday afternoon (Mon). He captured the amazing moment snow fell on the red sand dunes in the world's largest hot desert for the first time in 37 YEARS. Snow was last seen in Ain Sefra, known as "The Gateway to the Desert," 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. Karim said: "Everyone was stunned to see snow falling in the dessert, it is such a rare occurrence. It looked amazing as the snow settled on the sand and made a great set of photos. "The snow stayed for about a day and has now melted away."
