Countless Ice Balls Floating on the Shores of Lake Michigan

Countless ice balls crowd the shoreline of Lake Michigan in Glen Arbor, Michigan in this short video uploaded to YouTube earlier this week by Bob Smitka. The ice balls are created when the lake cools to slightly below freezing, causing small chunks of ice to form. Waves slowly add new layers of ice while shaping the chunks into spheres. A similar ice ball event occurred last year.
