watch the video, tell me what you think it is?


I'm afraid she lost my vote when she started rabbiting about God giving her a sign!!!! Especially when they all went home and prayed...... ???  For what, exactly? Deliverance?

What needs to be considered is that a nearby "Volcano" ride apparently blows smoke and smoke blown from a vent will sometimes form a smoke ring and it is known that smoke rings can be extremely durable and tenacious, even in gusty winds. Something to do with Bernoulli's Law, recirculating toroidal air currents etc. etc. that keep the smoke swirling in a tight ring shape and propel it away for some distance from the source. Having said that, who knows what it was? I do know that smoke rings don't always look "smokey"; a lot depends on the velocity of induced spin, density of smoke, range, light conditions, back ground and so on.

The deliberate blowing of toroidal vortices or smoke rings from industrial chimneys has been investigated as a means of getting smoke and harmful gases to higher altitudes before they disperse, so the "science" for it being a smoke ring is sound.

I think the UFO "expert" probably got it right.  :)

aww Mike you spotted it lol ok you get a nice bit of cake for getting it right lmao....trust you!


did you know that on 08-29-1929  Virginia Coast

A steamship on its way across the Atlantic–400 miles off the coast of Virginia, was over flown by a huge luminous airship. The captain, startled, made immediate contact with the nearest authorities who had no explanation for the sighting.   hmmmmmm

Yes, thank you, No.10, but that was a bit before my time.  ::)
