Ranger Dave Loome said the perfect circle of ice stood out Wednesday when he cruised by Nesowdnehunk (Neh-SOUD'-nuh-hunk) Stream on a snowmobile. He snapped a photo that went viral. The first ice disk, about 100 yards wide, attracted international attention after it was spotted in the Presumpscot River in Westbrook.
Crowds were mesmerized as the naturally occurring disk spun slowly in Westbrook. It stopped once but a paddle-boarder managed to get it going again.
This story has been corrected to identify the ranger's last name as Loome, not Loomed.
