Strange spaghetti-like formations discovered in Finnish lake
An unusual natural phenomenon of what appeared to be strands of slush in the shape of spaghetti was sighted in Lake Suolijärvi, in the South Häme region. The discovery, which disappeared overnight, has raised a lot of speculation in the social media and among experts.

In the Hämeenlinna district of Finland, Suolijärvi Lake has been garnering a lot of media attention because of a very unusual photograph taken by local resident Vesa Kaloinen, who has lived on the shores of the lake for 55 years.

Last Wednesday, January 8, Kaloinen was warming up his waterfront sauna in the early afternoon between 1 and 2 pm when he noticed something unusual in the water.

He took out his rowboat and went to take a closer look.

"In the lake there were white strands that were tens of metres long. They looked like snow. I reached in and grabbed some of them and made snowballs, which I then threw," said Kaloinen.

Yle meteorologist Matti Huutonen was also amazed by the images.

"I've never seen anything like it before. I can't explain it, but it must be something relating to the water and air temperature. And those two created just the right conditions for the phenomenon to take place," says Huutonen.

Hydrologist Johanna Korhonen from the Finnish Environment Institute is equally puzzled.

"It's some kind of slush, but I can't explain it more specifically than that," says Korhonen.

That's strange to say the least.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

No such things here. This is a freshwater lake at 0C. It's definitely water frozen in this noodly fashion.

As if the sea bed was cold enough to freeze, but the water above wasn't.
