We about to get walloped with a huge snow storm so today’s mystery is why does snow look white? There’s actually a real scientific reason that snow is white. What happens is light scatters and bounces off the ice crystals in the snow. The reflected light has all the colors in it which when together looks white.
So when you’re sledding, shoveling, or playing in the snow this week you’ll know why it’s white.
