Folks in Milo enjoyed quite a sight Tuesday morning when an ice disk formed on the Piscataquis River.

Louise Rhoda lives on Elm Street along the river and captured the ice disk in a picture Tuesday morning.

She says she's been in the area since 1983 and has never seen anything like it in her more than 35 years there.

An ice disk is thought to form in a body of water where there's a circular current creating a whirlpool effect.

Last winter a large ice disk formed in the Presumpscot River in Westbrook and quickly gained international fame.

The Milo ice disk broke up later in the morning when it drifted downstream and passed under the Route 6 bridge.
