Weird “vortex ice” captured on camera by the Health Ranger

Saturday, May 26, 2018 by

A few months ago, I walked across a very strange form of “vortex ice” sprouting out from the base areas of plant stalks. These ice formations seemed to defy gravity, growing out sideways (and even up) instead of downward.

Knowing that no one would believe my description without video proof, I filmed this “vortex ice” and took several photos.

Notice that this isn’t a wind effect, since the vortex ice seems to sprout in all directions, not just in a single direction. As you can see from the video, this was also happening in direct sunlight, and there’s essentially no ice or snow anywhere else on the ground.

This “vortex ice” is paper thin and extremely delicate. Watch the video below and see what you think, and check out more weirdness at
