Fluid dynamics

I'm no scientician, so I have no idea how water could possibly freeze this way (it's sticking out into the air at a 60 degree angle). There was nothing on top of the ice cube tray. I am impressed by the strange cleverness of molecules and natural forces.

Pretty sure it has to do with the gravitational pull of the moon combined with a repetative oscillation of your freezer.

Oh no... this feels like you made this up but, since I got a C in high school chemistry / physics, I just don't know. Ok, who should I make the check out to?

Its more likely that its caused by a controlled drip from another part of your freezer like a stalagmite in a cave that grows upward.

Thanks, Peter!
