Maine’s giant spinning ice disk has finally met its end because of unseasonably warm weather.
The famous disk that had most of Maine in awe has lost its shape and appearance that made it look like a blue moon.
Westbrook spokeswoman Tina Radel says that the disk was on the move last Wednesday and that its “time may be limited.”
The ice disk formed in early January, drawing crowds to the river’s edge and attracting attention online. At one point, the disk stopped moving and many people were concerned.
Then, more ice disk sightings started popping up in other parts of Maine.
It formed naturally where there is a circular current that creates a whirlpool effect.
Radel says a webcam set up by scientists from Brown University that provides time-lapse photography of the disk will remain in operation through the spring.
