They certainly are fascinating and a reward for having that glass in that door. Thanks for sharing these works of natures art.

Thanks Gil and Susan.

Susan I have never seen these in any regular sealed window. They are not frost that you can scratch your fingernail into, on the outside of the glass. These are inside the sealed panes, between the sealed panes of glass. Completely untouchable.

I thought in the past that the seal must be broken, and moisture got in, but the window shows no mist or moisture any other time of year, except when it gets around -40 or colder.

Thank you Charlotte, Mikepic, Betsy and Elaine!

Betsy this is the only double-paned glass in the house, everything else is triple. This patio door is the only place we get these tiny formations, between the panes of glass. There must be just a bit of moisture in there, but not enough to 'mist' the window other times, only these delightful creations of 'winter magic' in the extreme cold.

I love all your frost flowers, Katy. Tell us more about this window, ie. is it a single pane, a part of the heated part of your house, in a shed?

Here it is just the day previous, without the crowning 'fans.' They are just little stubs the day before.

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
