The Sahara Desert is known for its hot aura as it is named as "the largest hot desert in the world".
But enough about hotness, it finally snowed in the Sahara Desert on December 19. Can you believe that? It's not that easy to believe this actually happened and if you have any double thoughts about this, there's enough proof as NASA's Landsat 7 satellite was there to capture the beauty. It looks ravishing.
This article is a visual treat for all our readers. Spread the word, friends!

The area covered in the snow lies on the northern end of the desert, near the Moroccan-Algerian border and the town of Ain Safra.
