You Can Now Watch The Famous Ice Disk Every Moment of the Day
The naturally-occurring ice disk in Westbrook, Maine is still going strong, spinning every minute of the day even after our first big storm of 2019.
Those who work in neighboring buildings can gaze out their window at the disk any moment of the day, but the rest of us have to rely on Instagram photos or news updates to see how our icy celebrity is doing.
Well, not anymore, folks. Now there's a live cam on the ice disk so you can check in on it at any time of the day or night.
Here are some ICE DISK FACTS (Say that 10 times fast!):
• The ice disk is 300 feet across.
• It's spinning counter-clockwise at the pace of a brisk walk.
• It formed entirely naturally by water rushing past a large frozen chunk of ice and slush, eventually causing it to rotate and chiseling it into a perfect circle.
• At one point, the disk stopped spinning as it attached to the side of the river (as seen below). It was set free by a paddle boarder.
