Some of the weirdest things that have been found on Google Earth are beautiful blue ponds in the middle of the red desert in Utah. In fact, the pond’s bright blue color will surely catch your attention. However, these ponds are actually potash ponds. To be specific, they are evaporating ponds with potassium chloride. They would add a blue dye to the water to produce a strong bright blue color. Then, the red dessert will optimize the evaporation process. As a result, crystals of potassium and salt are left in the pond.
