Mysterious black ring filmed over UK

Posted on Monday, 14 April, 2014 | Comment icon 72 comments

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.

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.

Well since there is zero proof of ET's visiting then a baloon must have exploded. I hope nobody was hurt.

Disguised? When everyone can see them?

A better game on UM would be "Fact or Fiction". Fiction. 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 reported a balloon crashing into their house.

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?

The round dent it my couch cushion is a cleverly disguised portal to the noxious gas dimension.
