Hoarfrost Is Beautiful, What Is It?
Wake up early in the morning in late fall and you will probably see that frost like the icy layer of moisture on everything. It has a name, and its name is Hoarfrost.
Encyclopedia Britannica describes Hoarfrost as,
Hoarfrost, deposit of ice crystals on objects exposed to the free air, such as grass blades, tree branches, or leaves. It is formed by direct condensation of water vapour to ice at temperatures below freezing and occurs when air is brought to its frost point by cooling.
So this is something we have all seen and "wowed" at. As it turns out, I have been taking photos of it all along and not known there was a cool name for it. Check out some of the photos I have taken around Kalamazoo and Battle Creek of this cool weather phenomenon.
