What is the Black Ring of Leamington Spa? Mysterious object in the sky is captured by girl, 16, on her iPhone

By EMILY KENT SMITH, Mail Online

Weather experts have been baffled by a black ring which appeared in the sky above Leamington Spa on Friday evening.

Schoolgirl Georgina Heap was playing tennis with her mother Jo Heap when she looked up at the sky near Warwick castle and saw a mysterious black ring.

She photographed the circle on her iPhone but so far, no one can explain the origin of the strange black mark.

The Met Office said that the ring did not appear to be weather-related.

Nick Pope, an expert on UFOs and a previous government adviser on unexplained phenomena, said he believed the circle to be 'organic'.

He said: 'It's a truly bizarre image. It looks like a smoke ring, but I can't see where it could have come from.

'Other alternatives would include some sort of unusual meteorological phenomenon.

'One other possibility is that the shape is made up of millions of bees or other insects, but I've never heard of insects behaving in this way before, so if this is the explanation, it's a real-life X-File.'

Miss Heap, who is studying for her GCSEs, described the circle as 'the weirdest thing I have ever seen'.

She said: 'I looked up at it and thought ‘what the hell?’, it was amazing.

'It was just floating there like a cloud and then it disappeared. It wasn’t birds either.
'There were about ten of us who stopped what we were doing and watched.'

    When I remote viewed the ring I saw a Nordic disc shaped space craft. They are invisible to the eye but left this sign that they were there. They launched from Nordic base in Antarctica and returned there. I will say that my channel Y'kao a Nordic/Martian told me why they were there but warned me not to write about it.  It is hard to take. I did write something about this in one of my posts in the forum.
