'Watermelon' Snow Phenomenon: Wonderfully Beautiful And Quite Dangerous At The Same Time
December 13, 2018
Winter, especially when it's snowy, is a fascinating time of beauty that gives us not only wonderful landscapes, but also some natural phenomena which are sometimes rationally inexplicable. For example, we are all sure that snowflakes are white. However, that's not completely true, as each snowflake is made of transparent crystals of various shapes and sizes. Still, it's an accepted standard to think of snow as white, except for when it is arbitrarily colored various shades and intensities of pink and emits a pleasant aroma somewhat reminding one of a fresh, juicy watermelon. It is due to this fragrance that this phenomenon got its original and even somewhat poetic name.
