"It’s no secret that people in the UK are forever complaining about the weather, but it seems this week they were well within their rights. For the first time ever a rare phenomenon usually only seen in extremely cold countries was spotted on the River Otten in Devon.
A massive spinning ice circle caught the attention of Roy Jefferies as he was walking his dog by the river last Wednesday morning. Measuring a whopping 10 ft in diameter, the rotating disc sat stationary in the river where two currents merge.
Mr Jefferies called a friend, Mr Blisset, who lived nearby, and just happens to have an interest in the strange and bizarre. He identified the ice disc as a true rare specimen."
I'd never heard of these before, and assumed it was some kind of "crop circle" type of thing, but apparently it *is* real.
Here's one in Ontario, Canada, that was filmed while spinning.
