Teenagers find 'alien eggs' in frozen lake

Two friends in Utah have recorded footage of a mysterious ice circle filled with egg-like objects.
The peculiar phenomenon, which was found by the teenagers in the middle of a frozen lake, consists of a circular feature filled with strange white crystals that seem to defy explanation.

In the video the two youths can be seen inquisitively poking and prodding at the objects while jokingly referring to them as 'alien eggs' due to their 'gross' and 'slimy' consistency.

The footage has proven quite popular since appearing online with Internet users offering explanations ranging from a frozen puddle of paint to a meteorite impact crater.

Some have even suggested that it could be some sort of viral marketing campaign.

So far however no definitive explanation for the phenomenon has been found.

I would say a viral marketing campaign could be eliminated as a possible reason. This video was uploaded back on September 18, 2013. I also doubt these are alien eggs. The big thing here is that the video was shot very close to shore at Vineyard Beach on the eastern shore of Utah Lake. The boys admitted to taking two approaches to the site while filming, but that still leaves plenty of other foot traffic to the location.!3m1!1s0x0:0x0 Ice pellets for melting snow? That seems like a plausible answer, not very smart for ice fishing, but looks to be something dumped on to... [More]

Sorry for my humor but what I find difficult about this story to believe is that 2 teenagers took their eyes off of their cellphones and actually looked at something they had never seen before.
