A mysterious ring of black smoke slowly floated over the village of Shortandy in northern Kazakhstan before dissipating. Its origin has baffled researchers.
Recently, residents of Shortandy in northern Kazakhstan saw a strange thing in the sky above their village. A mysterious black ring of smoke slowly floated over the village before dissipating. Researchers estimate the ring to be floating around 650 feet off the ground with a diameter of 300 feet.
"It was like a black cloud. We saw it at around 4 p.m. on April 3. It dissipated like smoke, but it was completely odorless," said villager Oleg Menshikov. You can watch a video that was shot of the encounter below.
Some speculate that the ring could have been created by a specialized smoke machine, but who would bring such a device out into the remote parts of Kazakhstan? The black ring may never be explained.
