The rain left freezing "ghost apples" that were watching around the world, hitting some trees in western Michigan, according to a report from WOOD-TV.

The orbs were created like a glass when the rain created solid iron shells on spoiled apples in the Fruit Ridge area, County Kent, according to Andrew Sietsema, who painted them.

Sietsema said when it was at tree trees, many of the frozen apples completely fell, and the television station reported. But sometimes, only the rotten mush is slid out.

According to WOOD-TV, Sietsema said that it is particularly the Jonagold variety, "but call these Jonaghosts."
