My guess is it's chemtrails
Panspermia theorists say India's red rain contains life not seen on Earth

ALIEN life may already exist on Earth - us.
There's an idea - common, but not popular in scientific circles - that all life on Earth was seeded from comets, asteroids or meteors which stuck the planet and contained the building blocks necessary to kickstart the evolutionary process.
It's called "panspermia" and caused an all-in boffin barney some 15 years ago when several scientists backed claims there was evidence of life in a Martian meteorite found in the Allan Hills in Antarctica.
It's been proven that life can survive in space, just as it's been proven that the interior of the Mars meteorite never rose above 50C during its journey to Earth.
Unfortunately for alien-spotters, those cells can also be found on Earth, so the argument's never been settled.
Then in July 2001, the rain turned red in India.
And not just red - The Hindu claimed witness reports of yellow, green and black rain in the months that followed.
The first theories to eemrge was that it was simply sand or dust picked up from a desert, but a local physicist, Godfrey Louis, found that under a microscope, the water contained cells that looked like bugs.
Five years later, he published a theory suggesting the bugs that turned the rain red in India may have come from a comet that exploded above the Earth and seeded clouds.
Today, after a further four years of studying the cells, joined by a leading panspermia theorist from the UK, Chandra Wickramasinghe, Professor Lewis has published claims that they are unlike anything found on Earth.
He says the cells - inert at room temperature - begin to reproduce at 121C.
