Researchers spend a lot of time studying clouds and various natural phenomena, often surprising people with their mysterious structures, but they are not always able to find out the cause of celestial mysteries. A few days ago, it was also difficult for experts to answer the question of how the cloud ring made itself known over Kazakhstan.
According to representatives of the National Space Agency, who uploaded the corresponding image to the World Wide Web, a bizarre whirlwind flew over Balkhash Lake, located in the eastern part of the country. As you can see in the photo, the cloud circle was almost perfect. At the moment, Web users are sharing their impressions, trying to identify the sources of this arrangement of affairs.
As you know, orbiting satellites collected by experts from the agency replenish the Internet with fresh images almost every day, and the device with the name INSAT-3DR, which is regulated by the Indian Space Research Organization, delights the stars of science and space fans with interesting shots almost every half hour.
The satellite created an image of strange Kazakhstan clouds in the middle of the day, local time. Shortly before this, a mysterious phenomenon was associated with a convection sphere beyond the mountains called Tan Shan. According to researchers, the clouds suddenly began to spin due to strong winds. The radius of the circle is two hundred kilometers, which is not so much if you start from space standards.
Something similar, only on a smaller scale, was filmed in California. As reported by Western media, in the sky above the city of San Diego an ideally flat cloud of ring formed, which periodically, you can say, was updated, becoming smoother at those moments when it began to lose its shape.
However, the story of the California cloud ring seemed to many not too convincing. Observational Internet thinkers have come to the conclusion that it would be worth considering as the next fruit of the workshop of working with Photoshop, since a striking phenomenon at first glance does not seem very natural.
