File - In this Sept. 5, 2012, file photo, provided by NASA, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Aki Hoshide, Expedition 32 flight engineer, uses a digital still camera to expose a photo of his helmet visor during the mission's third session of extravehicular activity (EVA). During the six-hour, 28-minute spacewalk, Hoshide and NASA astronaut Sunita Williams (visible in the reflections of Hoshide's helmet visor), flight engineer, installed a camera on the International Space Station's robotic arm, Canadarm2. "Selfie" the smartphone self-portrait has been declared word of the year for 2013 by Britain's Oxford University Press. (AP Photo/Nasa, Aki Hoshide, File)

HAVANA — Each summer, microscopic dust particles kicked up by African sandstorms blow thousands of miles (kilometers) across the Atlantic to arrive in the Caribbean, limiting airplane pilots' visibility to just a few miles and contributing to the suffering of asthmatics trying to draw breath.
In this Aug. 19, 2013 satellite image provided by the NASA Goddard MODIS Rapid Response Team, the Aqua satellite captures African dust blowing over the eastern Atlantic Ocean, approaching the Canary Islands. Each summer, microscopic dust particles kicked up by African sandstorms blow thousands of miles (kilometers) across the Atlantic to arrive in the Caribbean, limiting airplane pilots’ visibility to just a few miles and contributing to the suffering of asthmatics trying to draw breath. The phenomenon has been around as long as there's been sand in the Sahara Desert. But it’s attracting ever more attention from regional scientists who say the clouds have grown, even if there’s no global consensus on the issue. (AP Photo/NASA Goddard MODIS Rapid Response Team)
In this Aug. 21, 2013 photo, people look out at the Havana skyline from Morro Castle, in Havana, Cuba. In recent days and weeks a particularly large cloud dusted eastern Caribbean islands, made for hazy skies and intense, tangerine-tinted sunsets off Havana, drifted over Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and was detected as far away as Wyoming. In satellite images provided by NASA, the enormous, smoky clouds can be seen wafting westward from Africa covering hundreds of square miles. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
