Hi all. This story doesn't seem to have been picked up by anyone on ATS so I thought I'll write about it.

Turns out people in certain parts of Sri Lanka have experienced "Red Rain" falling from the skies on the 14th and 15th of November. This seems to have occurred out of the blue with none of the usual causes in that country or neighbouring countries (ie. large fires, huge amounts of industrial smoke etc) and its apparently the first time this phenomenon has been observed there. The country's Medical Research Institute is planning to put the red rain water samples under the microscope for further analysis, at which point we should know more about its composition.

Links include article and pics.

I'm guessing the will find Oxidized Iron in their Samples. Just read a PDF I found relating to ChemTrail Composition and other Kool Stuff from a Thread here at ATS. Can send you a copy of the PDF, if ya like. Later, Syx.

Whoa, that is weird.

It's almost got a pinkish tinge to it.

They say it may be due to algae or something similar... it'll be interesting to see what the test results come up with.

Thanks for the post.

When I was a bit younger we used to live near an aluminium plant and due to the massive ammount of bauxite, wich is red, our first snowfall of the season used to be pink. Cant recall if it ever cause the rain to be clearly red though.

Apparently the cause of the red rain is a type of trachelomonas algae that came down with the rain water. Here's the link

I e-mailed and spoke directly to the scientist studying the Indian Red rain and that is not what he is saying, he believes it to have come from space and seems to have good reason.

Clearly the authorities do not want panic over this odd happening!

Very interesting...I thought algae only grows in stagnant water? (altho the article states bacteria of the algae is present)

Care to share your communications with the scientist? Not that I'm saying it's not true that you're e-mailing him/her, just that I'd like to see their specific wording for what they feel is going on.

I did save his e-mail but i can't seem to find it, this is him here, and he did say he likes hearing from the public.

Please read some of their papers listed there.

This paper gives a very good explanation to the red rain phenomena also

Well, the bible talks about a time when waters turned red, just before the Exodus.

This is happening all over the planet. Some people say it is from the Sahara, well why are they getting in the Artic and Sweden and India and China from the Sahara?

Red skies and water; what does it mean

I don't mean to depress with yet another Planet X conspiracy theory, but

it has been said that if this planet existed, and if it came near enought the earth

with its comet tail of iron oxide, the earth would experience red rain. The same

people who conjectured this possibility stated that would signal we have about

6 weeks to "get to safety."

The scientist listed states "We argued that the red cells that caused the red rain of kerala was originated from a cometary meteor and the cells are extraterrestrial. The first evidence of life beyond earth. This research is now ongoing."

This link just confuses me more: did the rain fall in 2008 or July 2012?

Don't even start reading some of the crazy blogs about Nibiru and red rain if you google that -

its a recipe for panic. I'll reserve panic for when the moon turns red

No volcano's or volcanic activity in Sri Lanka. No faultlines running across either.

Here's a news video from a local station.


a rough translation is that the lab found an algae species to be living in the water samples and said that this species of algae was found to be multiplying rapidly within the water samples. The species alternates colour being red at times and green at other times, even turning green while in the test tubes. These algae are found commonly on earth and multiply quickly when in water. And their also found in the sea. A DNA test will also be carried out on the samples to confirm the genetic structure/identity of the algae.
