Clever Video Shows How A Snowflake Gets Formed

Clever video shows how a beautifully intricate snowflake gets formed

Video: Here's a clever video that shows the "formation" of a snowflake. It's actually footage of a snowflake melting, but it's played in reverse, so it seems like we're seeing the birth of a snowflake. But even though it uses that bit of trickery, it's such a beautiful process to see. I wish we could see it in real life.
