Orange snowfall has blanketed parts of Eastern Europe from Romania to Sochi in Russia.
Despite the apocalyptic landscapes dotting Eastern Europe sparking fear online, meteorologists have assured the orange snow is completely natural. In fact, it can be attributed to strong winds from the south billowing Saharan sand into Europe. When the raindrops land on something and eventually evaporate, they leave behind a layer of dust.
The resulting snowfall spectacularly paints the mountains in hues of yellow and orange.
NASA satellite imagery captured on March 23 shows a monstrous sandstorm making its way from Egypt through Greece and into Russia.
The National Observatory of Athens confirmed this was one of the largest transitions of Saharan sand to Greece.
The meteorological agency said the north African sand cloud led to some of the highest dust concentrations in the past decade last week, Express reported.
