A new physical idea is proposed and realized, concerning measurement of sizes and orientation parameters of ice crystals in the atmosphere in situations, when ice crystals have a preferably horizontal orientation. The method consists in measuring angular sizes of specularly reflected component of the scattered light, which manifests itself in case of the horizontally oriented particle and has a sharp peak in the direction of specular reflection.
