Incredible Underwater Ice Bubbles Trapped in Canada Lake


The rare phenomenon occurs each winter in the man-made lake, Abraham Lake, located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.  Bubbles are created as the plants on the lake bed release methane gas, which freezes as it comes closer to the cold lake surface.  That is, until spring comes and the ice starts to thaw.
