Massive 10ft Spinning Ice Circle Discovered in the UK

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.

That is so cool! I remember seeing this in streams in Colorado on occasion...but I never realized what actually caused it.
