Snowflake-a-Day #3

Today is the big day - the reprint of the snowflake book is scheduled to arrive at some point, and I'm waiting around for the heavy lifting to begin! Every large truck that drives by has me peering out the window with excitement. Got your copy yet? http://skycrystals.ca/product/pre-order-sky-crystals-unraveling-the-mysteries-of-snowflakes-book/

Day 3, I suppose 3 snowflakes would be fitting! View large and zoom in and you'll see that it's actually five individual crystals in total with some interesting overlaps. :)

These snowflakes are stuck together at various points, and this is how I discovered them on my mitten. While these snowflakes formed in nearly identical conditions, you can see the wide variety of structures that result. Of particular interest to me is the center of the bottom crystal - looking closely, it seems to be significantly indented.

This odd center could be caused by a thicker outer ridge (usually formed during slower growth conditions) growing inward back to the center as well as outward forming branches. The circular pattern in the very center is a sure sign that this has happened to some degree. It seems more three-dimensional than most, which leaves me scratching my head!

Other interesting things include the brighter crystal sitting inside the biggest snowflake. It has just begun to grow its own branches, and the brighter reflectiveness is caused by multiple layers of ice all reflecting light back (from each overlapping crystal surface). The snowflakes on the left are interesting to, with the top crystal mostly appearing transparent due to its different angle to the camera.

Snowflakes often fall in clusters, and they can be hard to separate without breaking them. In this case, I would have destroyed some of the branches trying to get just one crystal isolated. As long as there isn't too much overlap with confusing edges and angles, these clusters can make great images!

The highest court in the US voted to strike down a law that prevented gay couples from being recognized by the federal government, which also means a lifting on a ban on gay #marriages in California.
