New England has been dumped with snow due to winter storms that also brought bone-chilling cold this week. However, the occurrences have been shrouded with a strange ice formation to one Maine river.
In Westbrook City in Maine, around 20-minute drive east of Portland, a mysterious disk of ice has appeared in the Presumpscot River.
City officials estimated the disk to be around 300 feet wide and about the size of a football field.
UFO enthusiasts who saw the disk formation believe the disk is an alien spaceship disguising itself as a natural phenomenon caused by winter storms. They said that the disk was spinning on a frozen river signifying that it was conducting an activity under the river.
City officials went the extra mile with the use of a camera drone to capture stunning images of the disk from above.
According to the official explanations, the varying currents of the river formed the disk. Part of the river flows in a rapid straight line movement, but currents near the other bank flow slowly in a semi-circle. That portion of the river freezes because of the slower currents. The formation of the ice disk is due to the clockwise motion.
However, UFO enthusiasts argue that the formation is a perfect disk and aliens operating under the river have something to do with it. They said that it could be extraterrestrials carrying out a mission under the river.
