Frozen Ice Balls of Lake Michigan

Every winter, on the shores of Lake Michigan in the United States, as well as on Stroomi beach in northern Tallinn, Estonia, hundreds of frozen ice balls form naturally.

The balls form when chunks of ice break off the massive ice sheets that coat parts of the lake in the winter, and as the waves toss the ice blocks around the lake, additional ice forms around them in layers and the ice blocks gets bigger and bigger just like snowballs or hailstones. The pounding of the waves shape the ice into spheres.
