Maine’s giant spinning ice disc that quickly gained international fame survived the weekend winter weather that pummeled New England and now has its own webcam.
The webcam in Westbrook monitors the disc that’s been spinning in the Presumpscot River for more than a week and continues its counterclockwise rotation. The Portland Press Herald reports the disc has enjoyed increased notoriety, due to its unusually large size — about 100 yards across.
Westbrook official Tina Radel says the livestream was requested by Brown University, which asked for a webcam to monitor the eventual demise of the disc.
The disc had gotten stuck last Wednesday, but was later freed by a Freeport man.
