Spinning ball animation can be easily created using the transform property to rotate the ball. The animation iteration count is applied as infinite to get the never-ending spinning animation. To get the glowing effect, box shadow is used.


  • Create an HTML file with the name index.html.
  • Create a div element in the index.html file and give a class name ball.
  • Add style to this class name.
  • Create an animation named spinball using the @keyframes rule. Use the transform property to rotate the ball.
  • Apply 2 color inset combination in the box-shadow property to get the glowing spinning effect.
  • The spinning speed can be adjusted by changing the animation duration.

Example: Here is the implementation of the above-explained steps.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible"
    <meta name="viewport"
          content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>Spinning Ball Animation</title>
        * {
            background-color: black;
        .ball {
            height: 40px;
            width: 40px;
            border-radius: 100px;
            position: fixed;
            top: 50vh;
            left: 50vw;
            animation: spinBall 0.13s linear infinite;
            box-shadow: inset 0 0 18px #fff,
                inset 6px 0 18px violet,
                inset -6px 0 18px #0ff,
                inset 6px 0 30px violet,
                inset -6px 0 30px #0ff,
                0 0 18px #fff, -4px
                0 18px violet, 4px 0 18px #0ff;
        @keyframes spinBall {
            100% {
                transform: rotate(360deg);
    <div class="ball"></div>
