Snowflakes never fail to stun when viewed up close, but this microscopic timelapse of the things forming is simply breathtaking.

It helps, of course, that the gorgeous video is set to Avril 14th by Aphex Twin. If you can tear yourself away and want to know more about how snowflakes form in all the wondrous glory, you can watch this video. [Vimeo via Boing Boing]
