MILLINOCKET, Maine (AP) — The massive ice disk that formed on a Maine river has a baby brother.
Officials at Baxter State Park in Millinocket shared a photo of an ice disk that’s about 30 or 40 feet across, much smaller than the massive disk that formed in a river in the city of Westbrook and more than 200 miles north.
Ranger Dave Loome said the perfect circle of ice stood out Wednesday when he cruised by Nesowdnehunk (Neh-SOUD’-nuh-hunk) Stream on a snowmobile. He snapped a photo that went viral.
The Westbrook ice disk eventually met its demise when it came into contact with other ice and stopped spinning.
