Recently a mysterious ring in the sky appeared over Leamington Spa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WR4ngTFHSPk

After much speculation it seems that the ring is likely to have been due to fireworks tests by Warwick Castle: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-magazine-monitor-2 7037579

An example of a similar vortex smoke ring: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFHElJxSMrM#t=1m09 s

    ...I thought that said "Leamington Spy Ring", and now I feel let down a bit.

    I know this site is all about the comments, but a non-story that was posted to the BBC 10 days ago is really scraping the barrel. There are (as of now) 26 other stories in the queue waiting to be accepted. Surely one of them is more up-to-date than this one.

      Interesting beats up-to-date, up to a point, so perhaps that was part of the decision.

      Not to mention overall exposure to the offerings of the BBC varies geographically.

    Spa, Hot Tub, all the same to me.

    Clean the scummy ring off with a little non-sudsing cleaner.
