Volcano blows spectacular smoke ring. A rare phenomenon, where a visible vortex ring of steam and gas is expelled from a volcanic vent. Under special conditions, gas and steam expelled from a vent can form gas rings.

It probably requires a particular geolometric configuration of a circular vent exit, as well as expulsion of gas in individual puffs with just the right velocity. Read more: www.cosmostv.org...

LMAO

People need skill to be able to do rings when smoking yet this Etna knows how to do it. Respect!

Why is this in Alien & UFOs? Color me puzzled...

Ok I'll play. It is real, not faked. Could be CGI but maybe not. Was there a missile launch near the volcano? Did a UFO shoot out of the crater making this ring? I know, its a chinese lantern...

Again, cool as it is, why is this here?

ETA: I see you realized your mispost. Sent you a U2U about it....

LOL I was about to post the same thing. Mt. Etna's nickname should be Mt. Tokin after this video! Shortly thereafter, Mt. Etna took a nap. Holy smoke ring Batman.

Heh, problem is that with this dude, you get molten rather than stoned.

Pretty cool.
You could be forgiven for thinking this is beyond natural phenomena.
Strange how the cloud travels in the opposite direction to the rest of the clouds and (apparently) the prevailing wind.
Also the glow is kinda eerie too.

Damn mountain blowing smoke rings...... I still can't!

Indeed it is amazing - that Etna footage inspired me to create this video over a year ago showing a collection of natural (and a few unnatural) toroidal vortices.

Featured are various volcanic smoke rings as well as bubble rings produced by dolphins, beluga & humpback whales, and man:

Ok! This video is now top 3 in my all time favorite videos on ATS.

Pretty sweet how smart the dolphins and whales were.
