It is time for the winter season and it means the snowing is going to get heavy. Nature takes its own course and one of the rare phenomenon seen during the season is ice discs. Circular sheets of thin ice are seen floating in the river waters at Maine and China. Because of the flow of the water, they spin around. It is a spectacular sight and videos of the same from two different locations have come up online. These videos are from Haynesville in Northern Maine and Genhe River in Mongolia, China.

Ice discs are formed in a river because of the force of the water which breaks a piece of ice and eventually twists it around. When the disc rotates because of the water flow, it turns into a smooth circle. As the winter season begins, similar discs have started appearing in different parts. People are sharing videos of the strange natural phenomenon on social media. The ice disc in Northern China's Genhe river is huge and since the video is taken from a drone, the view is just spectacular. Aliens Here or The Moon is on Earth?

This occurrence has been observed in Maine's Mattawamkeag River too. Although it wasn't as large as the one in China, the disc was slowly spinning here.
