  [hs height=”450″ theme=”3d-dark” buttons=”true” ] 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! 03:30 Hey kids, you liked my videos, didn’t you? 03:34 Before you go, don’t forget to click on the subscribe button and the bell. 03:39 So you won’t miss out on my latest videos. 03:43 See you.
