A massive spinning ice disc has formed on a USA river

'It kind of looks like a crop circle, ' resident Doug Bertlesman told the Portland Press Herald.

The disk formed because of the varying currents of the river.

On nearly the exact same date Westbrook's natural ice disk was discovered, a group of people in Little Falls, Minnesota, made their own 506-foot-wide ice carousel.

Before we get into that explanation though, have a look at some gorgeous drone footage, posted by the City of Westbrook, of the phenomenon in action...

"The Return of Wessie", she wrote of the ice disk.

Mitchell said he notified city officials as soon as he spotted the odd, counterclockwise-rotating disk.

A huge, spinning disc of ice - roughly 100 yards in diameter - has formed in the freezing waters of the Presumpscot River in Westbrook, Maine.

Either that or a giant alien space craft has landed in Westbrook, Maine.

Locals had seen smaller ice discs before but nothing like this one, Ms Radel added.

Rob Mitchell, who owns the building where Bertlesman's company is based, told the Press Herald that he notified the city about the disk on Monday morning.

"The ducks were rotating on this big lazy Susan", Mr Mitchell said.

"I have not personally [seen an ice disk like this], but these are seen occasionally in the right conditions, usually at a bend in a river where eddies are common", Walt Meier, senior research scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center, told Live Science. They occur when "a pile of slush freezes in an eddy or a piece of ice breaks off from another and begins to rotate".
