Strange orange snow hits eastern Europe and Russia

Cities around Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Romania have all reported the bizzare orange snow phenomenon, videos of which have quickly gone viral.

Tourist destinations, including ski resorts, have been blanketed by the orange snow, which has turned snowy mountains into sand dunes.

Several witnesses compared the scene to an ''apocalyptic scenario'' or something that resembled the surface of Mars.

Experts blamed the weird snow - which in some places even looked brown - on a combination of sand and pollen, reports the Sunday Express. Scientists from the Sochi Centre of Hydrometeorology and Monitoring of the Black and Azov Seas arrive to test the strange snow. A spokesman said it was likely the result of winds blowing sand from the Sahara desert, which then fell as rain. They predict the snow will return to normal within days.
