This spinning circle of ice was captured on camera by George Loegering. The retired engineer was out and about on the banks of the Sheyenne River in North Dakota when he witnessed the rare weather phenomenon.
The spinning ice is odd because water normally still water freezes and water flowing quickly enough to swirl and whirl breaks up ice. In this instance experts suggest that there was an eddy in the river at just the right speed and the cold, dense air was just right to encourage the ice to form on top.
