A mysterious ring cloud hovering above Shangrao of Jiangxi Province in China has left the residents baffled. The strangely shaped cloud appeared in the sky last week, but the video has gone viral now.
A video shows orange-hued cloud floating in the sky above a village at Shaoyang town, Shangrao. The round cloud looked like a flame burning and it remained in the sky for at least 10 minutes.
The video was initially shared on the Chinese social media site Weibo and later it went viral on YouTube. The video also shows several locals capturing the mysterious phenomenon on their cameras.
Some villagers believed that the mysterious phenomenon is nothing but UFO hovering above.
However, despite the UFO whisperings of the citizens of Shangrao, similar rings have been spotted over Russia, the UK and the USA.
Scientists identified these wisps as smoke vortices. Their cause is also understood as the result of a blast through a circular venting structure like a flue or pipe, and can be created intentionally or otherwise.
