00:07 Wow! I love the sight of snowflakes.
00:11 Aren’t they the most mesmerizing thing?
00:14 So today, I feel like talking all about snowflakes!
00:19 Zoom in!
00:22 When an extremely cold water droplet comes in contact with dust and freezes on it,..
00:28 ..ice crystals are formed!
00:31 And when those crystals start sticking to each other and falling on the ground,..
00:36 water vapor freezes and sticks on them, building new crystals.
00:42 Therefore, snowflakes are formed during really low temperatures.
00:50 There’s something absolutely remarkable about snowflakes!
00:54 Now, see these two!
00:56 What do you think is different?
01:00 Now, see this.
01:02 And this.
01:04 So, no two snowflakes have the same structure!
01:09 Yes, since every snowflake follows a different path while falling on the ground,..
01:15 ..they experience different atmospheric conditions.
01:19 And thus, they all tend to look different from each other.
01:24 Some look like prisms, while some have a needle-like appearance.
01:29 while some have the familiar icy pattern!
01:35 What do you think is the color of snow?
01:39 White? Blue?
01:42 No, actually snowflakes are colorless!
01:47 That’s because snowflakes are translucent,..
01:51 ..which means that light hardly passes through them and rather gets reflected.
01:57 Hence, this creates a white like appearance in the snowflakes!
02:03 Since, we are talking about appearances…
02:06 I think I should tell you about the smallest snowflake!
02:10 Take a guess, what could be its size?
02:14 No.. No… no…
02:17 Ahaaan! There you go!
02:19 The smallest snowflake could be as small as a human hair.
02:25 And it has a name too.
02:28 The Diamond Dust Crystals.
02:31 They are super rare and appear in bitter cold winter.
02:35 And the largest snowflake till date is…
02:38 Ahaan! You gotta wait for that till Trivia time!
02:44 The largest snowflake observed was 15 inches long!
02:49 Larger than these two pencils put together!
02:53 Each winter in the U.S, at least 1 septillion ice crystals fall on land!
02:59 That is.. 1,000,000,00…
03:08 Actually Its 24 zeros!
03:13 So, you enjoy the feel of snow snuggled up in your blanket.
03:19 With a big mug of hot chocolate.
03:21 and don’t forget to tune in next time for more fun facts.
03:26 This is me zooming out!
