What strange objects appeared around the Gulf of Ob in Siberia during winter 2016?


-Giant, naturally occurring snowballs
-Fish frozen together to form planks
-Ice-covered meteorites
-A blockade of icebergs





The accumulation of giant snowballs around Siberia’s Gulf of Ob looked like a scene from a sci-fi movie, but the strange snowballs formed naturally. These unusual objects result from an extremely rare environmental phenomenon that finds fragments of ice gradually rolled into spheres by wind and water currents. Although the exact type of weather and environmental mix needed for these balls to form isn’t clear, most experts agree it is likely a combination of ice formation, temperatures and ocean currents.
