That’s the name given to the red water coming out of the face of Taylor Glacier into Lake Bonney  in Antarctica.   Scientists have discovered the water is colored  by  a bacteria  in the water,  which is now believed to be part of a larger hydraulic system connecting the lakes in the regions Dry Valleys.
