Thousands Baffled By Chinese ‘Cloud Ring’
November 10, 2017
The cloud, which formed over Shaoyang in the Shangrao district of the Jiangxi Province on Nov. 2, was almost perfectly circular in shape. It very quickly took local social media by storm, but government officials have not discussed it.
There is something of an explanation for the cloud, which experts say is a “smoke vortex,” created by either a volcanic eruption or explosion. There are no volcanoes in the area, and an explosion of any kind would have drawn a lot more attention.
These vortices, however, can also be created by factory smokestacks. Shaoyang is a large city—population 7 million—with a number of factories that could have been the source of the vortex.
Still, with everything going on in the world today, one can’t help but be reminded of Ezekiel’s vision of a “wheel in the sky.”
