Weather Balloon Filled with Oxygen and Acetylene | RE-UPLOAD

Weather balloon. Spherical shockwave. Similar but not identical to a supernova. You should start the video right before the 9 minute mark if you are in a hurry.

But, I think this may prove my theory that Finns aren't from this world.

It is The Great Circle from Yefremov's novels. Well, a few of them.

It's star gas from Uranus - that stuff drifts a long ways...

Madaynun: Intergalactic teens texting.


More likely someone was using a Baofeng UV-5R near the telescopes.  Them things are notorious for spurious emissions.

FTFA: "The edge-brightening in some ORCs suggests that this circular image may represent a spherical object, which in turn suggests a spherical wave from some transient event," the researchers write. "Several such classes of transient events, capable of producing a spherical shock wave, have recently been discovered, such as fast radio bursts, gamma-ray bursts, and neutron star mergers."

The researchers add that because of the "large angular size" the transient event in question "would have taken place in the distant past."

Read that as Fart Radio Bursts, and large Analur size. Sounds like they could test for emissions too.

/Yes, I am 12.
