Caption: Rimed snowflake. Snowflakes are symmetrical ice crystals that form in calm air at temperatures near the freezing point of water. The exact shape of a snowflake depends on local climatic conditions. No two snowflakes are identical, as each experiences a wide range of conditions as it forms inside a cloud. This snowflake is covered in rime, small droplets of frozen water from the cloud in which the snowflake formed.
