Mysterious green cloud hanging above the city of Moscow, Russia puzzled residents as Friday is the anniversary of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster in the Ukraine. Green dust clouds moved from the south-west. But according to Interfax, officials say that given the time of year and the atmospheric conditions, the mysterious green cloud is actually a cloud of pollen from birch trees.

It has been dry and warm for the past week in Moscow. With dry weather, pollen accumulates on leaves. With a sudden gust of wind, pollen can shake loose. High heat, which came to the Moscow region with an intense wind, caused the formation of a large amount of pollen, which, mixing and moving in the air, can form such a cloud.

According to the pollen monitoring , which are published on specialized sites devoted to the problems of allergy, April 26 in Moscow, recorded “extremely high levels of pollen in the atmosphere due to very heavy dusting of birch. In the coming days, the concentration of pollen will remain very high.”

According to an allergists, brand manager of a pharmaceutical company, Anatoly Ponomarev, the concentration of birch pollen in Moscow now exceeds the average of almost 4-fold. The concentration of pollen in Moscow is extremely high – 19 654 units per cubic meter. For comparison, the average concentration is 5-7 thousands. Allergists points that intense blooms will soon pass. It usually takes 21-30 days, but such an intense bloom is over before.

Meanwhile, in the emergency department for Moscow and Moscow region, “Interfax” explained that the pollen can form plaque, a yellowish-green color on the pavement, the windows of houses and cars.

  1. Just the other day, Wuhan City China was covered with a thick yellow fog that locals said had a greenish haze to it; now officials are spreading disinformation saying it was grey, and it came from straw….
    Now we are seeing the same thing in Moscow, and officials are saying it’s pollen…
