What a Rare Snow in the Sahara Looks Like From Space

Viral Pics It's snowing in the Sahara Dessert no we are not kidding

Past year the town, known as "The Gateway to the Desert" saw deep snow shortly after Christmas and it caused chaos, with passengers stranded on buses after the roads became slippery and icy. Last time it received heavy snowfall was in the year 2017.

With temperatures touching 1 degree Celsius (33.8 Fahrenheit), residents in the northern Algerian town of Ain Sefra enjoyed sliding down the small sections of dunes on Sunday morning before the snow melted away.

From polar bears living without snow to the installation of artificial reefs as a replacement for natural habitats, shifting climates are impacting animals-and humans-across the globe. While snow is historically scant in the desert area, a similar snow phenomenon happened just previous year.
