Mystery as BLUE snow covers St Petersburg with locals fearing bizarre phenomenon is due to toxic chemicals

    Some believe the blue snow is due the demolition of a research institute in city
    Experts said the colours could have been caused by cobalt or methylene blue
    Samples were taken to lab for analysis and an investigation has been launched

Lucky that we have science. A few hundred years ago, people would probably have thought "Wow, blue snow, it must be magic, maybe if I eat it I will get God-like powers.", and then they would get ill by eating cyanobacteria.
