    The paper presents experimental investigation of a homogeneous circular disk rolling on a horizontal plane. In this paper two methods of experimental determination of the loss of contact between the rolling disk and the horizontal surface before the abrupt halt are proposed. Experimental results for disks of different masses and different materials are presented. The reasons for “micro losses” of contact with surface revealed during the rolling are discussed.
