Snow turned to Blood Red at Ukrainian Antarctic Station

The snow turned blood red at the only Ukrainian Antarctic Station.

But it’s actually far away from the mysterious Antarctica Blood Falls!

You have probably heard about the Blood Falls in Antarctica, do you? It’s a place where an Antarctic glacier seems bleeding.

Well, yesterday, some red bleeding snow was spotted in front of the Vernadsky Research Base, the only Ukrainian Station in Antarctica, located at Marina Point on Galindez Island of Argentine Islands, not far from Kiev Peninsula.

Yes, the snow turned blood red in Antarctica!

According to scientists, the red coloration is due to the blooming of thousands of unicellular green algae Chlamydomonas nivalis, which contain red carotene to protect themselves from ultraviolet radiation.

Two weeks ago, snow along the coast of the Caspian Sea in Kazakhstan turned blood red, baffling local residents. So what’s behind this biblical red snow in Antarctica? Algae? Another sign of the incoming apocalypse? More biblical headlines on Strange Sounds.
