Video captured mysterious aerial scenery of the "Saturn Ring" in Mangya City, Haixi Mongolian and Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, northwest China's Qinghai Province. The unique scenery was formed due to strong winds in the arid mountain area, according to experts.  

It was found that the rings of the "Saturn Ring" contained high levels of salt, and the salt layer was harder than the surrounding soil. The soft soil has been blown away by the wind for a long time, leaving behind the accumulation of weathered salt, forming the "Saturn Ring" spectacle on the landscape similar to the rings of Saturn.
