What is this terrifying black ring FLOATING over Yorkshire?
And while those claims may be beyond the pale for many even the experts at the Met Office have no more concrete explanation.
The latest sighting took place in Birkenshaw, West Yorkshire, and the strange circle seems to resemble a giant smoke ring – but there seems no possible source and local fire services say that there were no reports of blazes on the day of the incident on Sunday, July 9.
The image was taken by 22-year old Kimberly Robinson, who said: “Me and my boyfriend were driving … and noticed a black flying ring in the sky.
The strange ring was spotted over West Yorkshire
“We hadn’t ever seen anything like this before.
“We have looked into it and no one knows what it is.”
A spokesperson for the Met Office confirmed that they do not believe that it is a natural phenomenon.
“It does not appear to be anything at ground level that is causing the smoke to rise.”

She said: “We had our WWI re-enactment on the Saturday and our WWII one on the Sunday, and that plume is actually from the WWII battle.”
But, the war re-enactment does not explain similar rings which have appeared over the UK and across the world.
Similar rings have been spotted around the globe, including this one in Russia
