We look at clouds…



Clouds, big and billowy, tall and threatening, wispy and delicate, they all tell a story about what is happening miles above us. I have always wanted to know more about clouds. To be able to look up and name the specific type of cloud and to understand how it was created. For me, Gavin Pretor-Pinney is the key to this knowledge.  He is the founder of The Cloud Appreciation Society and author of The Cloudspotter’s Guide: The Science, History, and Culture of Clouds and The Cloud Collector’s Handbook. His TED Talk is inspiring! Check it out below.

“Clouds are the patron goddesses of idle fellows” —Aristophanes
