Ice Circle in Michigan, December 2006
Report from Michelle in Amasa, Michigan
On Tuesday night, December 26-27, 2006, his neighbor was coming home from work at 12:45 AM and noticed pulsating lights as he turned off US 141 onto Townline Road which crosses the Hemlock River. As he approached the hill which breaks into the river basin, the lights disappeared. Thinking he was just going crazy he went home and went to bed. The next morning he called the man I was talking to and told him what he had seen. Curious, he drove down to the bridge and found a perfect circle about 50' in diameter cut into the ice and it was rotating in clockwise rotation.
I went down to see what was going on and sure enough there was the circle which I photographed. Due to the man witnessing vibrating beam of lights around the area where the ice circle was discovered, researchers are looking for a possible connection between the two. We must also realize that ice circles can be made by natural currents in a stream or river.
