Weird, Black, Ring-Shaped UFO Spotted On A Motorway In England

Check out this weird, black, smoke ring, which appeared out of nowhere before vanishing just as quickly. Weird, isn't it?

The solid-looking ring was spotted by Kimberly Robinson and her boyfriend, Danny Cooper, near Birkenshaw on the M62, which is a motorway in the north west of England.

Kimberly said: "Me and my boyfriend were driving today and noticed a black, flying ring in the sky. It looked a bit smokey but the shape was a solid ring.

"We hadn't ever seen anything like this before so we have looked into it and no one knows what it is."

West Yorkshire Fire Service said there were no reports of a fire in that area at the time the photo was taken.

Then the plot gets even thicker. A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "We have had a look at it and cannot think of anything meteorological that would have caused such a phenomenon.

"It looks reasonably clear, with fair-weather cloud that looks like it has bubbled up. There is a little bit of rising air in the atmosphere. It does not appear to be anything at ground level that is causing the smoke to rise. It looks as if it's a small feature rather than something several miles across."

There's been a few of these creepy-looking, smoky UFOs spotted in recent months. One was filmed above Disneyland in California. Cool; so it's aliens then, yeah? Smoke-aliens coming here to put a stop to vaping? Or portals to other dimensions? That'd be good, wouldn't it?

Sadly, no. Like so many times before, our hopes of alien-life are dashed before they've even started. I know, I'm sad, too,

Nick Pope, who investigated UFOs and other mysteries for the Ministry of Defence in the past, has a pretty solid idea of what the mysterious ring is.

He said: "Despite exotic theories about UFOs, aliens, or portals to other dimensions, I believe there's a decidedly down-to-earth explanation here. A so-called smoke vortex can arise when you have a blast through a circular structure like a smokestack. So these weird effects can be caused by accident - or indeed by design.

"On this latter point, they can be created as a sort of pyrotechnic effect, and it would be interesting to know if there were any outdoor festivals being held in the area concerned.

"I realise that by debunking this I'll probably be accused of working for the Illuminati or something, but I genuinely think we can close the case file on this one."

Anyone else 100 percent reckon Nick is working for Illuminati after he said that? The truth is out there, sheeple.
