Canada is full of amazing natural wonders and this is no different. However, these stunning white spirals aren't clouds like you might think. Swirling ice eddies off the east coast are actually frozen formations caught up in ocean currents.\nThese twisting and turning streaks of white appear to be clouds when you first glance at them but they're happening in the ocean, not in the sky.\nAccording to the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration, eddies can form along the boundaries of cold and warm ocean currents.\nIce eddies like the ones spotted off the coast of Labrador are common in the spring and fall months because of a delicate balance.\nThe ice needs to be warm enough to break apart but still cool enough to stay frozen as it gets caught up in the currents.\nWhen everything falls into place, it makes for a breathtaking sight!\nAs the melting sea ice gets into the ocean currents, it makes the usually unseeable spiral movements of the eddies visible from above.\nRecently, the swirls were spotted dancing across the surface of the ocean off Canada's east coast on April 18 and April 19 and the images are so stunning.\nWide sea ice drawings close to eastern coasts of #Labrador peninsula,as seen yesterday by @CopernicusEU #Sentinel3 #Canada #ocean @ESA_EO @SatelliteSci @weatherdak @CIMSS_Satellite @UWCIMSS @PlymouthMarine @Oceanjournal @futurasciences @RAL_Space_STFC @CanadianGIS @RCGS_SGRC pic.twitter.com/KtEBaaW8M6— antonio vecoli (@tonyveco) April 19, 2020\n10-minute #GOES16/#GOESeast True Color RGB images showing the motion of this Labrador Sea ice on 18 April: https://t.co/IxNhqY8zKR pic.twitter.com/yMXtS4yKAX— Scott Bachmeier (@CIMSS_Satellite) April 19, 2020\nWhen the melting ice breaks into chunks, ocean currents stir those pieces into a cyclone-shaped vortex, which is what you can see floating around.\nThose spirals can range in size from several hundred feet to even a few hundred kilometres.\nAccording to The Weather Network, warmer eddies rotate clockwise while colder ones rotate counterclockwise.\nSo that's why you can see the swirls moving in different directions.\nOn April 19, #SuomiNPP captured this image of ice swirling in the Labrador Sea off the coast of Labrador and Newfoundland, Canada. Ice eddies like these form when melting sea ice breaks into chunks. Ocean currents then stir them into vortices.
