The homeowner immediately went out to investigate. At first, he may not have known if it was water, a pile of snakes or some poisonous gas, but decided to get to the bottom of things.
Fortunately, someone had a camera running through the strange encounter and decided to share it online. With almost the entire neighborhood watching, Callender carefully poked holes along the rim of the bubble.
He must have poked at it more than a dozen times. However, the water was still inside the bubble. He then jumped on the growth in an effort to force the water out.
The bubble only moves like a waterbed as the man walks around it, poking repeatedly. Callender then pokes the stick once more and tears a hole in the side of the bubble.
Instantly, the water gushes out of it and pours for several minutes. All those watching it are surprised by the encounter.
Callender advises the children not to try this at home. A female voice, who is capturing the action, humorously replies that there was "only one kid who can try this."
According to the Daily Mail, the bubbles are formed when water gets trapped between a lawn and a membrane laid underneath to limit the growth of weed. The ground balloons up as the water can not drain out.
Callender said, "I found this odd lawn bubble in my backyard. So strange but interesting." The phenomenon was caused after torrential rains in the area.
"I hope it's not going to turn into Noah's Ark," he joked.
The woman behind the camera says that it was "an old-fashioned" mud puddle as the water dispersed throughout the lawn.
