    Default Must see!! Huge smoke ring in the sky!!

    Hey friends,

    Just saw that on youtube!

    Well, all I can say is that I havenīt seen anything similar during my whole life!

    What is that? Do you have any idea?




    It doesnīt look like a rare cloud of something like that...It looks more like one of those disks frozen in liquid nitrogen...

    Cheers,

    Raf.

    Not a cloud in the sky? The smoke at the bottom of the video was dark brown, as if the ring was shot from a tube. It's very strange looking, but I wonder if it was a magnified closeup?

    Wow good find RMorgan, to me it looks like a UFO saucer type shape just shot outta that cloud, leaving this cloud ring as it shot off, the direction of the formation prolly indicates the direction of the UFO...

    Of course, this is based on the fact that UFOs exist in the first place.

    Good spot about the brown smoke. What would make a smoke ring like that?

    I think the brown/orange colors are due to sun reflections...It looks like it was filmed just before the sunset.

    It looks really huge and dense, because thereīs a lot of vapor/smoke coming from it and it still looks very thick...It also looks very static in the sky.

    As a former smoker, I know that smoke rings usually keep going until they completely dissolve...They donīt stay at the same point, with the same density.

    Anyway, I have no clue about what is it.

    Cheers,

    Raf.

    That's absolutely beautiful, I can't imagine how breathtaking it would be to see that above you.

    There are several similar videos on youtube, however, from different volcanoes. The explanation given under one of the vids is this:

    Volcano blows spectacular smoke ring. A rare phenomenon, where a visible vortex ring of steam and gas is expelled from a volcanic vent. Under special conditions, gas and steam expelled from a vent can form gas rings. It probably requires a particular geolometric configuration of a circular vent exit, as well as expulsion of gas in individual puffs with just the right velocity.

    This phenomenon is quite rare, but has been witnessed at several volcanoes, including Stromboli and Etna. At Etna, a spectacular period lasting several months was observed in 2000, when one of its vents created hundreds of smoke rings each day, in rapid succession.

    Copyrights: VolcanoDiscovery.


    Don't know if all that's legit or not, but the ring is certainly a breathtaking sight. It looks like the symbol of a serpent with its tail in its mouth, creating a circle. Like a beautiful plumed serpent in the sky.

    Very beautiful and mesmerizing. What caught my eye was the photography. It seemed very professional and smooth. Either a very steady hand or on a tripod. The latter would indicate that this event was planned.

    It's possible the photographer had his camera ready in hopes of some volcanic activity. I enjoyed a comment under one of the videos: Dolphins do it, volcanoes do it, potheads do it.

    And as Modwiz suggested, Longbottom Leaf makes for some spectacular rings.

    I wonder if this was took at Niagara Falls, Ontario. This summer we were staying at a hotel, which overlooked the new Mini Putt Golf, complete with a scaled down version of a volcano. This volcano would "blow" it's top every 10 - 12 minutes, spewing a huge cloud in the sky, and when not windy, would actually produce the same type of smoke ring shown here. It was quite the show, and we could even feel the heat blast from across the road.

    Here is a pic I took of one that lasted for 5 minutes in the sky,
