People posting on You tube are stupid to use foul language. It can only decrease
the number of hits a video can abtain. As it becomes a no no for certain sites.

Yeah, there's something more than a simple hot spring there... actually watch the video. The red, pulsing mass looks like a huge mollusk... and it's not "clay," as there is NO diffusion like there would be if it were disturbed red clay/sediment... it's a continuous red mass and it looks friggin biological. A slime mold? An unknown, or rare, European mollusk? Probably, but either way, way cool!
On the weird end, maybe it's a creature that came with a meteor... and that reminds me of some personal weirdness...
When I was a kid in Illinois in the 1970's, there was a spectacular meteorite shower and the next morning there were several off-white, crusty on the outside, soft on the inside, masses of goo slowly pulsing and moving up the wood pillars on our front porch. They only moved an inch or four in an hour, always going up, and the largest was the size of a basketball while the smallest was golf-ball sized (though they were mounds, not complete spheres).
They looked like mounds of bread dough, even down to the crusty exterior, but they "pulsed" in unison... about four pulses a minute. Anyway, it was a cloudy morning and they evaporated when the mid-day sun finally broke through, like a bunch of shroomy vampires.
Before they vanished, a group of college kids from the Uni of Chicago showed up in the neighborhood and took samples?!
They said they'd been called by a neighbor who noticed them and had a biology background and had never seen the like before, so had called the University... so I guess they were spread through our neighborhood.
However, we never knew who called those kids, or even IF they were really college kids... and never heard anything else about it or what the samples told them. There might have been a small town newspaper story about this... but I'm fuzzy on that.
ETA and the college group were the ones who said "Maybe they came in with the meteor shower last night?" and laughed. We hadn't put it together with that possibility until then, or maybe I was being sheltered from the possibility of an alien slime invasion until the college kid opened his mouth.

which get's trapped in the algae mat mostly sitting on top. As the heated water builds it eventually bursts through the algae mat showing the reddish coloured algae (yes algae blooms come in all colours) with the detristis pushed to the side, once the hot water escapes, the algae flops back into the hole and pulls the gunk back in again. Repeat.
I speculate something went through the ice
How do you conclude something "went through the ice"? What speaks against that the the ice never froze shut in the first place?
The frog gives it away that the water is warm...so I wouldn't know what else it would be but a warm underwater spring. Certainly something you don't see every day, especially in Summer you wouldn't even notice it....but not anything remotely "mysterious" or paranormal.
I'd be curious as to if the water level has gone down in the pond since this video was shot. If it has, could this be the start of a sink hole? I'm not really well versed on the subject, but could it be an air pocket cracked a small opening under the pond and there is a vacuum being created? Some water getting sucked into the air pocket underground, warmer air getting pushed back up creating a slight temperature increase in the water along with the red clay cloud that appears and seems to get sucked back down.
As I said, not very knowledgeable on the subject, but it reminded me of when you use a plunger on a sink.
I bet that frog is loving the warmer water as its swimming by
My guess would be an artesian spring. The hole is above the actual source of the spring the water being warmer than the ret of the pond and upwelling preventing it from freezing. Pretty common in Ontario where I live.edit on 3/6/2014 by Kukri because: typos
Did anyone see the frog?
It's at 1 minute and 27 seconds into the vid, and can be seen for 2 to 3 seconds, as well as a brief look early on. Lower right quadrant.
