I mean seriously, do you guys have any idea how HUGE these circles are? If I had to guess, I would have to say its gas escaping from a volcano located underneath the ice. Because it said in the article that it isn't the first time they see these circles, well the southern one atleast, it has appeared in 1985 and 1994 I believe.
Mystery of Giant Ice Circles Resolved
But experts say they can explain the mystery, and it's not aliens - methane gas rising from the lake floor represents the likely culprit. Methane emissions can create a rising mass of warm water that begins swirling in a circular pattern because of the Coriolis force, or the phenomenon caused by the Earth's rotation that also helps create cyclones.
