The ice formation is floating in the Presumpscot River

Steven Daly of the Army Corps of Engineers' Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory in Hanover, New Hampshire, told The New York Times that while the organization is alerted to one or two rotating ice disks in the country annually, they are rarely so large.

The perfectly round disk is spinning counter-clockwise at about the pace of a brisk walk, according to locals.

In the city of Westbrook, Maine - just a 20-minute drive east of Portland - a near-perfect disk of ice has formed in the Presumpscot River.

Didn’t know about allegations Manafort shared polling
Prosecutors say Manafort acknowledged the meeting only after being told that they were in the same city on the same day. CNN reporters had first observed Fabrizio at the special counsel's office in Februrary 2018, according to the report.

The massive, frozen sheet can be seen churning down the middle of Presumpscot River, which cuts through Westbrook, an old mill city west of Portland, Maine.

"It's probably formed - and this is speculation - by the aggregation of small little bits of ice or in an initial big chunk of ice that, because of initial rotation, little pieces of ice glob onto it", Nakroshis said. "... allowing the water to freeze more readily, while water moves faster around the edges, generating the spin".

City of Westbrook authorities were notified of the disk by a local businessman, and used a drone to capture the moonlike ice formation.
