Filled my ice tray, in a standard freezer, and about an hour later this happened. But how!?

Nothing was above it, it was on the top rack. And most of the cubes were only still half frozen.

Most likely, your freezer was in auto defrost mode, as the frost melted, it dripped slowly in one area and froze to this shape. The same effect is observed at the bottom of a gutter tube when it goes from dripping to freezing, it makes the same type shape...

Its a lump of ice from outside sitting in some water.

An air bubble , as the pressure changed in the water do to temperate change it rose, allowing water to drop and build up.

Not unlike the way a stalagmite is formed from water building up.

This is definitely beyond the realm of normal physics and space-time stuff.

Recommend you set up a wifi webcam in the freezer and duplicate the experiment while recording. You may need infra-red light or maybe use a big candle.

I recall seeing an example of this kind of thing before, but for the life of me I can't remember exactly where or when. Sorry.

Something to do with water expanding out of a small crack or hole in the top of the cube?

It's obviously the nefarious activities of this fellow.

Never saw one of these before. There's no frost on the inside of the freezer, and it's pretty much empty as well. It's an older fridge (8 years) but seems to operate pretty well.

Good answers so far lol

I was wondering if this happens for others. I have an ice maker now, or I would post pics of my own. A chemist told me this kind of ice spike usually only happens in a quick freeze. You can see it on cars sometimes. My exes would prefer to use the spiky ice in their' drinks.
