In July 2001, southern India was hit by weird red rain floods. What could cause it? Or who? From BBC Horizon science show We Are the Aliens.


Was the red rain in India evidence of alien microbes from deep space? Does that explain how life started on Earth? Are we all aliens? Or was the red rain just unusual red algae from the Indian waters?

Thats quite an old claim, and has been proven incorrect. Chandra "Chicken Little" Wickramasinghe who was a student of Hoyles, and claims to have "Proof" of Extraterrestrial Life and confirmation of Panspermia every 3-6 months champions the idea only. The rain has been analysed and the colour comes from very terrestrial algae spores.

According to Prof Jayaratne, this so called "red rain" is a very common phenomena in the southern Indian state of Kerala and such coloured rain had been reported in Kerala as early as 1896 and on several occasions since then

The colour was found to be due to the presence of a large amount of spores of a lichen-forming alga belonging to the genus Trentepohlia. That report also stated that there was no meteoric, volcanic or desert dust origin present in the rainwater and that its color was not due to any dissolved gases or pollutants," he said.
