The strange figure in the sky of Lima that went viral on TikTok and the explanation of what it is

Over the years, the registration of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) has been increasingly common throughout the world. Videos that, for some skeptics, are a source of ridicule, and for other credulous, proof that “we are not alone in the universe.”

In Peru there have also been these types of records. With the cell phones by hand, it is easier to be able to capture an event in the sky that catches our attention and then publish it on a social network. That is precisely what happened with a clip that has generated hundreds of reactions and comments. At this point it is already viral in the application where it was originally uploaded: TikTok.

The user identified as Diego Benjamin Cherokee He was traveling in a vehicle through the streets of the Lima district of Surco, when he saw a strange spectacle in the sky. So, she turned on his cell phone camera and recorded a strange shape forming in the sky. Let’s remember that drones now do this type of light show and it could perfectly be one of these gadgets. It looked like a giant number eight that formed in the sky. The tiktoker wanted to add a little suspense to the video and asked himself the question: “Can someone explain to me what that is?”.

Most of his followers did not know what exactly it was about but that, through other TikTok accounts, they had seen the same figure. Until a user gave the most logical explanation of all the comments: and it would be a toroidal vortex.

And toroidal vortex, also called a vortex ring, is a region of rotating fluid moving through the same or different fluid in which the flow pattern takes on a toroidal (doughnut) shape. The fluid motion is around the poloidal or circular axis of the donut, in a vortex twisting motion. Examples of this phenomenon are the smoke rings from a smoker. Until the closing of this note, the video of only seven seconds already almost reached two and a half million reproductions. Crazy. For their part, the I like it they surpassed her 273 thousand red hearts. There are all kinds of comments, some recognize the figure but others take it with more humor and joke with what is really happening when comparing it to some famous science fiction movies.

“I don’t know, but I’m already seeing 3 identical tik toks”, “It’s llamatrina You find me, I find you anaia ikta ichmaix”, “Alert there is a fault in the matrix”, “Thanos is coming”, “We are recording parody of Arrival , sorry”, “that clearly is an infinity that the sky was tattooed but it was where a friend charged him cheaper”, “it is the new test of San Marcos”, “it is the Rainbow Path of Mariokart”, are some of the funny messages that can be seen.
