An image from outer space shows the Nile River in a blood-ride color. (Source: European Space Agency)

However, the river wasn't actually turned to blood. The image, released by the European Space

Agency, was created by the satellite Sentinel-3A, which uses a radiometer to measure visible and infrared energy. In short, the red hue of the river represents vegetation, not an allegory from the Bible.

The agency uses the satellite to monitor land use, wildfires, bodies of water and the aforementioned plant life. In the Biblical story, Moses turned the Nile River to blood by dipping his staff in ancient body of water.
