Why are all snowflakes different?
A snowflake’s shape evolves as it falls through the air – even when falling side by side, each would be blown through different levels of humidity and vapor to create a unique shape.  Scientists believe it highly unlikely identical snowflakes exist, but it is hard to prove!

Why is snow white?
Snowflakes are transparent or translucent.  As light passes through them, all colors in the light reflect off the ice crystals, making the snowflakes appear white.
