Last year we wrote about a mysterious water anomaly, formed on the Kuban River in the Krasnodar Territory. On melted literally overnight a fantastic even circle appeared on the ice with a diameter of about eight meters, continuously rotating under the influence of the current. The edges of the imposing ice block are as if measured with jewelry accuracy by a giant compass and cut chainsaw. However, experts reported that people here neither at what.

Like, calm wind and minus seven degrees Celsius, observed here for more than a week, created ideal conditions for the emergence of a circle of frozen water. “Such discs sometimes form on the external bends of rivers, where due to the accelerating current, a slow rotation of ice occurs.
