Reconstructed the journey of Godzilla from the Sahara to South America: satellites have photographed the largest cloud of Saharan sand in the last 20 years as it crosses the Atlantic. The images were captured by the Sentinel satellites of the European Copernicus program, of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Commission, and by Aeolus of ESA. Every year, starting in late spring, the dust of the Sahara desert is raised by winds and thunderstorms that carry it into the atmosphere throughout the summer until the beginning of autumn, but it is the first time in 20 years that it forms. a cloud so vast that it earned the nickname Godzilla.
