Glowing rings in the sky were seen over Sibkulo (Overacel).

An eyewitness writes:

I was walking my dog. Standing in front of my house, I looked up and saw glowing circles in the sky. It was spinning very slowly. After 2 minutes, he was gone. 

I kept looking up and after 15 seconds he reappeared. It stayed in the air for about 1 minute, rotated very slowly and disappeared in the blink of an eye. Photographed from different positions. I've never seen this before. Is it a natural phenomenon or not?

Original news

Licht gevende ringen in de lucht

SIBCULO, OV — Ik was bezig om mijn hond uit te laten. Toen ik voor mijn huis stond keek ik naar boven zag ik licht gevende kringen in de lucht. Het draaide heel langzaam rond. Na 2 minuten was het weg. Ik bleef even kijken naar boven en na 15seconden kwam het weer te voorschijn. Ongeveer 1 minuut lang bleef het in de lucht draaide het heel langzaam en in een flits was het weg. Ik heb foto's gemaakt van verschillende posities. Ik heb dit nooit eerder gezien. Is het een natuur verschijnsel of. Wie kan mij dat vertellen.

Light sources on clouds

Lasers, searchlights, car headlights and other light sources of sufficient power can form a column of light in a dusty or foggy atmosphere, various patterns on low clouds, fog or haze. Also, the rays can highlight parts of the cloud, objects or birds, giving them bizarre shapes.

Searchlights can shine with one beam, several. They can be stationary, move, and also form spinning carousels on the clouds, which can change shape and color.

It often seems that the light source is located at the point where the beam hits the cloud, and not vice versa.
