Westbrook, Maine (AP) — The famous rotating ice disc in Maine is back.
The disc began to form on the Presampscot River and was partially formed in 2020, but failed to attract viewers around the world, as it first appeared in 2019.
Westbrook city officials shared a photo of the formation on Facebook on Wednesday, urging residents to share more images of the disc while it was still in existence.
As a result of the flow and vortices under the ice, an ice disk is formed. The ice sheet begins to rotate and then becomes a circle. However, in places like Westbrook, ice discs of this size are rarely formed.
City officials discouraged everyone from trying to get out on the ice. “It’s not safe.”
Three years ago, Westbrook gained international attention before the formation of 100-yard-wide ice first appeared in the river and disappeared with the arrival of warm weather.
