A rather strange phenomena has started appearing here in New York. While many people have heard of 'Crop Circles' and by extension their association with Aliens and UFOs, there are new curious phenomena that have started appearing.

Google Maps

First we discovered the underwater 'crop circles' of Japan, now after our last bout of snow, a local resident in Eden, NY discovered these new mysterious ice pond 'Crop Circles."

Eden resident, Peggy Gervase looked out at the pond near her home and noticed the unusual pattern in the snow covering the ice. There were large perfectly circular 'dots' in the snow. After taking the pictures and posting them on Facebook, Gervase got a number of explanations ranging from aliens and elephants to fish flatulence and frost heaving.

"I've never seen this before in our pond, it's eerie in a way, but cool in a way." -Gervase told WGRZ

As of now, the photos have gone viral. Gervase says she did not notice any strange lights in the sky but has received some bizarre questions.

What do you think? Snow Circles? Have you noticed any of these mysterious pond circles here in Utica or Central New York?
