A mysterious video of what looks like a black ring of smoke above the town of Lemington Spa in England taken on Friday has been making news this week. However, the BBC confirmed today that what has been dubbed the “Black Ring of Lemington Spa,” is actually a black ring of smoke.
On Sunday July 9, the residents of Yorkshire, England saw something strange when they looked up into the sky. Hovering roughly 300 feet off the ground was an ominous black ring of smoke. The shape just hovered above the quiet community for hours before dissipating.
Kyle Hawkins, film maker who uploaded the video said that they he and the people walking though the street along the Magic Castle at Disneyland have no idea of what it was. According to him, it was quite windy that time so what they witnessed could not be a smoke ring. He added that he expected an alien portal opening up through the sky, Daily Mail UK added. Still in disbelief, Hawkins has seen the strangest thing in his life.
The raw footage has been uploaded to YouTube. His UFO sighting video is a bit shaky. Nonetheless, it still caught the attention of conspiracy theorists. UFO blogger Scott C Waring posted new footage in his website where he included an analysis, Yahoo 7 reported. However, he did not reject the possibility that it could also be caused by the rides since Disneyland is a theme park.
While the circle resembles a giant smoke ring, Warwickshire Fire and Rescue service said that there had been no reports of a fire in the locality at the time of the sighting.
The Met Office said that the ring did not appear to be weather-related.
Nick Pope, an expert on UFOs and a previous government adviser on unexplained phenomena, said he believed the circle to be ‘organic’.
“It’s a truly bizarre image. It looks like a smoke ring, but I can’t see where it could have come from. Other alternatives would include some sort of unusual meteorological phenomenon,” he explained.
“One other possibility is that the shape is made up of millions of bees or other insects, but I’ve never heard of insects behaving in this way before, so if this is the explanation, it’s a real-life X-File.”
