Caption: Needle snowflakes. Snowflakes are ice crystals that form in air that has a temperature near the freezing point of water. If the air is calm, then symmetrical, hexagonal snowflakes can form, though the main component of most snowfalls is columnar ice crystals. Long, thin columnar ice crystals are called needle snowflakes.
