Clouds are something you don’t take much notice of. Although sometimes you do take notice when it is raining or you’re spending some time figuring out a shape in the sky.

Although there are many more things that happen to clouds.

Clouds form when warm air rises and then slowly cools down.  The water then decreases and turns into icy particles, then the particles go onto dusty particles and that is why you can see fuzzy /fluffy looking masses in the sky.

Cloud are actually really handy and important in our universe and atmosphere. They help regulate our planets temperature and clouds also bring rain and snow. Meteorologists use them to help learn more about weather and climates around our universe.

That is why we have a cloud atlas that is about 140 years old and very handy for meteorologists. It has practically become a catalogue for cloud formations and cloud species. It has different clouds pictures, definitions and explanations from all around the world.

I understand that clouds have their own species just like animals. So every cloud is a different species and has its own scientific cloud name.

For the first time in 10 years the cloud atlas has let new clouds be added. It was originally a hard copy on paper, although with the technology we have now they decided to put it online.

Why wouldn’t they let people put their ideas in the cloud atlas for 130 years?

(I am sure people got photos of cool clouds in between 140 years.)

There has been a new species just recently added called the volutus. It is a cloud that is known as the morning glory.

One iconic cloud is called the Asperitas that looks like a rough dark sea from the surface. This cloud has a Tasmanian connection. The person that photographed to identify this cloud is a Tasmanian Grandfather named Garry.

I understand how hard it would be to take an exact photograph of the cloud you are looking for because there are no “cloud experts” that will tell you when this cloud is coming, so you would have to judge it really well and accurately to find the cloud you are looking for.  

So keep your eye in the sky because you just might see a cloud around…
