Go Back Report # 1248


03-20-1992   ***ICE CIRCLE***


     Log # 921203E: On March 20, 1992, at 7:30 a.m., a family of six discovered a dark circle standing out boldly against the ice in a pasture on their horse farm, near Dundee, OH; investigators: Ted Spickler and Greg Knight (from West Virginia). Three hours earlier the wife heard the dogs barking but did not investigate. No UFO was seen. The sheriff was not interested. The sky was 15,000 feet scattered, 25,000 feet overcast, and the temperature was 21°F. The circle was 27 to 30 feet in diameter, with a foot-wide light-brown band around the edge. Most of the grass one would have expected in the circle is gone, with no evidence of it ever having grown there; yet scattered randomly throughout the circle are a few clumps of normally healthy grass. The darker color of the soil, compared with the surrounding soil, comes from an irregularly scattered pattern of black particulate matter finely embedded in the soil. This matter looks like carbon and is being analyzed. About 30 feet north is a slender, jagged, three-foot "scar" on the pasture of similar appearance. One foot west of the circle is a curious "post" hole about a foot deep with some loose soil at the bottom, but no other soil laying around it. The farmer was surprised at the sudden appearance of these strange things: He noticed his horses refused to go anywhere near the circle for five days after it mysteriously appeared.
