'Ice Circles' - St. Catharines, Ontario


Circular spots along with more random shapes in snow-covered canal ice (Welland Canal), found in early January 2005 (not reported until February 26). While quite possibly simply areas where the ice has melted, the near-perfect circular shapes of many of them is interesting, including the sharply-defined edges. Found just before the canal was drained, as it is each winter, and the day after the snowfall. A ground photo has been posted to the CCCRN web site (see the Other Circular Phenomena in Canada Archive).
