Lake Lonar of India Turned Rose Red in Just 3 Days
A meteorite penetrated our Earth’s atmosphere about 50,000 years ago, blowing a gaping hole and lighting the sky up in the area we know today as India. Lake Lonar was created as a result of this natural disaster. Still, this doesn’t explain why the lake unexpectedly turned rose red, all in just a 2-3 day span this past June.
This otherworldly incident has been attributed by scientists as a proliferation of algae and microscopic life in the body of water. This phenomenon isn’t unique to Lake Lonar. Around the world, and even in the U.S., you can find pink lakes – where the water has turned a shade of pink due to the algae and microscopic found in the water.
