The strange object seems utterly otherworldly, but once the camera gets a bit closer, the blob begins to tell its secrets.

Egg-like lumps of ice have covered a 'miles-long stretch' of a beach in Finland - in a bizarre phenomenon found on a scenic island in the Baltic Sea.

Dozens of polished ice balls have been photographed blanketing the beach on Hailuoto, in the Gulf of Bothnia, this month. 

Tarja Terentjeff, who lives 35 miles (56 kilometres) away in Oulu, told CNN: 'This was [an] amazing phenomenon, [I've]never seen before. The whole beach was full of these ice balls.'  

The Worst Day in Earth’s History Contains an Ominous Warning

  The Worst Day in Earth’s History Contains an Ominous Warning The worst day in the history of life on Earth, so far, happened almost exactly 66 million years ago, when an asteroid roughly the size of Manhattan slammed into the Yucatán Peninsula. You may know the story. The asteroid—which arrived, probably, in June or July—immediately drilled a 20-mile hole into the planet’s surface, vaporizing bedrock and spewing it halfway to the moon. The planet shuddered with magnitude-12 earthquakes, loosing tsunamis across the Gulf of Mexico.

Sirpa Tero posted photographs of the ice lumps to her Instagram. She said she has seen this type of ice formation before, just not to this volume.

Tero added that the ice lumps appeared to cover 'miles'. 

According to CNN Weather, the phenomenon is caused when waves near the shore break up layers of partially melted seawater.

These layers then stick together and grow into a larger piece of ice in the water. This ice eventually smooths into a ball when waves, or the wind, cause the stacks to spin in place. 

Photographs from the island, which is in the Gulf of Bothnia between Finland's west coast and Sweden's east coast, show the ice balls piled across rocks and sand on the shore.

ice that showed up on a beach off the coast of Finland , likely formed by rough water near the shore breaking up a layer of slushy ice , according to CNN. The slush then stuck together and continued to build in supercooled water while the waves caused the ice to spin around and form into smooth balls.

Egg -like ice balls are piled up on a beach in Hailuoto, Finland , delighting people who braved the cold to She said it seemed to cover miles . Ice balls such as these form when turbulent water near the shore As the waves crash ashore it causes the ice to spin in place, which smooths them into balls.

The ice formations vary in size, from pieces you could hold in your palm to others which appear to be the width of nearby beach rocks. 

These unusual ice formations are also often found on the five Great Lakes in the US in the winter months, including Lake Michigan near Chicago.

Thousands of egg - shaped balls of ice have covered a beach in Finland , the result of a rare weather phenomenon . Experts say it is caused by a rare process in which small pieces of ice are rolled over by wind and water . Mr Mattila, from the nearby city of Oulu, told the BBC he had never seen anything

Last January, video captured ice spheres as they floated from the lake's shores at the pier of St Joseph Lighthouse in St Joseph, Michigan.

Meteorologist Ari Sarsalari of the Weather Channel said three elements must be present for ice balls to form: extremely cold air, water that is not as cold, and wind.

'You start with a small piece of ice on the lake and with the wind whipping all that water around, all this spray gets on [the piece of ice] and it kind of freezes instantly, and you end up with these big old balls of ice', he explained.
