Fact of the Day: Snowflake

While snowflakes are known for their unique designs, they do share a common trait. Virtually all snowflakes have six sides.

Thanks for this interesting information ! I was totally unaware of this fact as we do get snow fall where we live :)

They can take their 6 sides and melt away

Do they - Can't say I have seen one as yet.

So beautiful!

DEZMOND said...

I knew they are never the same, but I didn't know they're all sixsided! Such delight! Too bad they're so small and fragile that nobody sees their beauty :(

Dana said...

Huh. Very interesting!

I thought this was just a picture someone has invented but not so long ago I learnt this is the real design of a flake. Kisses:)

I'm so tired of snow. It needs to be spring already.

I had no idea that they were six-sided.

is the most interesting thing I've read today!

Snowflakes are fascinating. Their consistent 6-sided shape is a result of their molecular structure.
