Put away those false idols, folks, Moses just turned up near the city of Chongquing.

Remember that fiery mushroom cloud that loomed over China earlier this year? You know, the one the government blamed on field-burning farmers? Well, they've got some 'splaining to do yet again, as the Yangtze River now runs blood red.

And nobody seems to know why, according to ABC News:

For a river known as the "golden watercourse," red is a strange color to see. Yet that's the shade turning up in the Yangtze River and officials have no idea why.

The red began appearing in the Yangtze, the longest and largest river in China and the third longest river in the world, yesterday near the city of Chongquing, where the Yangtze connects to the Jialin River.

Officials are reportedly investigating the cause.
