Nile River Turns Red

Posted by on Monday, April 4, 2016

The famous Nile River is flowing red. The European Space Agency captured the stunning image on April 1. 

The timing actually coincidences with  the holiday of Passover, which celebrates Moses leading the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt.

The reason for the red flowing river is due to vegetation surrounding the Nile, combined with the type of imaging used by the satellite. 

The Nile is a major north-flowing river in northeastern Africa, generally regarded as the longest river in the world. It is 6,853 km long.
