Mysterious black ring filmed over UK

16-year-old Georgina Heap observed the peculiar phenomenon for three minutes before it disappeared.
The black ring appeared in the sky over Leamington Spa on Friday evening while Georgina was outside playing tennis with her mother.

Grabbing her iPhone she filmed the ring for three minutes before it vanished. Her footage has generated a great deal of interest since appearing online and nobody is quite sure what to make of it.

"It's a truly bizarre image," said former MoD UFO researcher Nick Pope. "It looks like a smoke ring, but I can't see where it could have come from."

Other theories put forward include the suggestion that the ring could either be a swarm of insects or some form of rare meteorological phenomenon.

Vortex rings are white. The black ring of Lemington Spa doesn't alter shape and slowly drifts away from the tree. Firefighters reported no fires in the area and the Met Office said it wasn't weather related. The UFO expert Nick Pope said it was unusual behavour for any insects to do this and didn't think it was a smoke ring. But someone said it came from Warwick Castle where they were shooting fireballs during a trbuchet show. The color depends entirely on what made them and is technically irrelevant.

the vortex ring thing is cool. but here's something I've seen on "Fact or faked," on this. Suposedly, smokey rings in the sky are disguised portals extraterestrials made to come here and go back quickly. But it can also be a ring of smoke from, say, a large balloon that went ablaze.

It was a vortex ring naturally created by a departing alien spaceship. All questions answered.

I hope nobody was hurt.

the vortex ring thing is cool. but here's something I've seen on "Fact or faked," on this. A better game on UM would be "Fact or Fiction". Suposedly, smokey rings in the sky are disguised portals extraterestrials made to come here and go back quickly. Fiction. But it can also be a ring of smoke from, say, a large balloon that went ablaze. Probably also Fiction. Most balloons are filled with helium, which doesn't burn. And the materials used in the balloon are usually not explosive enough to make a cloud of smoke. Perhaps the burner off a hot air balloon? But then someone surely would have repo... [More]

Disguised? When everyone can see them? Well... "disguised" doesn't allways mean "Can-not-be-seen". Sometimes just "can-not-be-recognised-as-what-it-really-is".

Well... "disguised" doesn't allways mean "Can-not-be-seen". Sometimes just "can-not-be-recognised-as-what-it-really-is". Ok so aliens/ufo's feel the need to be disguised eh? Why could that be when our radars would pick them up anyway?
