India's Lonar Lake Mysteriously Went Overnight from deep green to reddish pink

Coronavirus Lockdowns may have led the algae , bacteria, as potential explanations why Lonar Crater Lake turned pink.

Scientists were flabbergasted  by 50,000-year-old crater lake in India after its usually green-hued water suddenly turned pink. Experts believe that the bizarre change in color was likely formed by the lake's changing alkalinity, though others suspect alternative explanations behind the change.

According to the Times of India, the sudden color shift of the Lonar Crater Lake that occurred suddenly in the middle of June 2020 has compelled government agencies and conservation organizations to investigate.

MN Khairnar, deputy conservator of the Maharashtra Forest Department in Akola, said. `We are observing the phenomenon to such an extent for the first time. We will collect samples of the lake water for testing to find the reason behind the occurrence. These samples will be sent to Neeri, Nagpur, and Agarkar Research Institute, Pune.”

This lake situated within the Deccan Plateau, part of the Lonar Sanctuary extending over 1,4 square kilometers of protected land in Maharashtra some 310 miles from Mumbai, the Lonar Crater Lake has an amazing past dating back millennia ago.
