Orange Snow in Parts of Europe

 Thanks to dust blowing in from the Sahara Desert, folks in several  Eastern European countries this weekend were surprised to see their snow  turn a weird orange color.  Skiers and snowboarders saw  orange snow in at least four countries, including Russia, Bulgaria,  Ukraine and Romania “We’re skiing on Mars today,” exclaimed one social  media user as he skied down the slopes, according to CNN.

The  freak weather phenomenon was brought about by sand being blown from the  Sahara Desert in northern Africa. In a NASA satellite image, the dust  was visible as a light brown streak staining the white clouds
