Snow Retro

12-sided Snowflake (KG Libbrecht, Cal Tech)

With four days remaining until the Spring Equinox, it may be a tad too early to engage in any wintry nostalgia.

But perhaps the amazing photography and cornucopia of information at will change your mind about that. A creation of Cal Tech’s Kenneth G. Libbrecht, author of a number of books on snowflakes, Snow is chock full of fascinating information about the phenomenon that most of us are hoping won’t return until near the end of the year.

Several photo galleries of snowflakes, a Snowflake Primer on the basic facts about snowflakes and snow crystals, a module on Frequently Asked Questions concerning snowflakes and snow, and numerous other interesting excursions into the enchanting land of the snowflake – all these and more can be found at

Take one last look, and enjoy winter in hindsight.
