You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout because it’s snowing in the middle of the Saharan desert. Yup, you read that right. Snow covered the Sahara.

Photographer, Karim Bouchetata, has successfully captured the stunning photos of snow-dusted sand dunes in the Sahara. For the first time in 37 years, snow has been spotted in the Algerian town of Ain Sefra. While the 1979 snowfall only lasted half an hour, the 2016 one lasted for a full day.

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