Caption: Plate snowflake. Snowflakes are symmetrical ice crystals that form in calm air with temperatures near the freezing point of water. The exact shape of a snowflake depends on local climatic conditions, mainly air temperature and humidity. They typically have hexagonal symmetry, as seen here. Plate snowflakes form at around -10 degrees Celsius. No two snowflakes are identical, as each experiences a wide range of conditions as it forms inside a cloud.
