Does it ever snow in the desert? It sounds weird but, turns out it does. Joining in with the festivities around the globe, snow fell on the largest desert in the world, the Sahara Desert. After 39 years since snow last fell, magical white specks mingled with the Sahara’s red sands, creating a stunning view across the desert. Luckily, photographer Karim Bouchetata was present to capture the extremely rare event in a little Algerian town called Ain Sefra. According to Bouchetata, the snow lasted for a day before it completely melted away. Don’t believe that the impossible is possible? The photos below prove otherwise.
