9 facts about snow you might not know


7. There is snow on the other planets too. There are wild temperature fluctuations on Mars. If you were standing on the Martian equator, you could slip out of your shoes, but you still would require a hat. The reason is that the temperature at your feet is equal to 69.8 degrees Fahrenheit, and at chest level it is 32 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s why you could see snow on your shoulders, which would disappear before it got to your fingers. This snow isn’t formed from water drops. It is frozen carbon dioxide. These crystals fall like mist. Dry and powder particles do not stick together in a snowball. Snow also falls on Venus and it is even much more bizarre than the Martian one. It does not consist of water or carbon dioxide. Venusian snow is made of metal.
