Circles are extremely common shapes in nature. We shouldn't be weirded out by seeing them, no matter how big they are.
Also, all the cool aliens fly triangular craft nowadays.

I am assuming NASA might be in trouble for releasing this story. I dont' thnk they'd want us or anybody poking around too much with some anomolie in a frozen lake.
I'm sure they know what it is, probably just caught the ISS people off guard. Didn't get the memo that day that they were pulling up Megatron .
No but really, there isn't any more information cause the Agency didn't want to give us any. Just a light and nice fluffy story for us.

Any one else feel the same way?
Half way across one particular bay, picking our way through the boulders and Toros, a grating, mechanical noise made everyone freeze and look around wide-eyed with terror. The noise rolled around the bay like an echo. My mind flicked through the possibilities; a fighter jet? Distant gunfire? Tanks? and rejected each in turn as unlikely. We stood in silence for a moment, waiting to see if the noise would come back. The immensity of what we had heard brought home our own vulnerability. Against this volume of ice and the forces that crumple it like paper, we were completely insignificant
According to the survey data, ring structures on the Baikal ice are not formed every year: after first detection, such forms were detected in April 2003 and 2005. In 2004, 2006 and 2007 such occurrences were not registered. However, in 2008 these rings appeared in two parts of the lake basin: near Krestovsky cape (a bit to the south-west of the location of 1999, 2003 and 2005 rings) and for the first time near Turka village. In April 2009 these enigmatic forms were detected to the west of the cape Nizhneye Izgoloviye of the Saint Nose peninsular and in the south end of the Lake Baikal.
There is an opinion that in order to explain this mystic phenomenon, it is required to study the point heat source system on the lake bed. In this case “emissions” of heat source, coming up, may result in the creation of rings. According to other versions, it is important to look into the impact of atmospheric and biogenic processes and events to find the reason.
