Eastern Europe Has Been Hit With Orange Snow

Eastern Europe Orange Snow

Orange snow is supposedly a thing now, as Eastern Europe was hit with the off-colored snow this week.

The snow isn’t the result of dye, or a weird ecological disaster, but instead a natural process that happens every five years or so. In the Sahara, massive storms kick up huge clouds of dust. Scientists have found dust from the Sahara drifting on American coastlines.

It’s pulled to the southwest by the winds and flows into Europe via low-pressure systems. In Europe this can manifest as a strange rusty haze.





So, yes, orange snow is slightly unnerving, but it’s completely natural.
