Caption: This snowflake is of the capped column crystal form, a form of crystal made in a cloud when water freezes into ice around -15C. Snowflakes show typical hexagonal symmetry (as seen here) if the crystallization occurs slowly, in a calm air and in temperatures near freezing point; they are commonly flat and may have different shapes such as six sided polygons or stars.
