Ice Disc - Beautiful Natural phenomenon
This six-foot-wide circle was spotted by Mississauga man, Brook Tyler last December near Sheridan Creek in Rattray Marsh Conservation area. Mr Tyler was pretty sure the circle wasn’t man-made, as some people at the time thought, because the ice on the creek was much too thin to walk on.

Ice Disc - Beautiful Natural phenomenon
It is thought that ice circles are formed when surface ice gathers in the center of a body of water rather than the edges. A slow moving river current can create a slow turning eddy, which rotates, forming an ice disc. Very slowly the edges are ground down until a gap is formed between the eddy and the surrounding ice.
