What to do when clouds fill the view of your sky? Turn this into a citizen science opportunity!

Join the NASA Night Sky Network to hear Dr. Jessica Taylor from NASA's Langley Research Center share with us how you can provide data to NASA even on cloudy days.

Join the GLOBE Cloud Challenge (see below, Jan 15-Feb 15). Your observations documenting what’s in the sky are helpful to scientists. Participants are encouraged to download the GLOBE Observer app to start contributing to this volunteer science community.A graphic with various blue tone showing a silhouette of a satellite.

Date and Time: 13 January 2022 at 05:00 PM in Pacific Time (US and Canada).


Start the new year with the NASA GLOBE Cloud Challenge!

Join our guest speaker from NASA for an interactive program to kickoff and learn about the challenge and how you can help NASA scientists study our climate by sharing and capturing data about clouds where you live!

To participate in the hands-on activity, please have the following material ready before the program begins:
-- a piece of paper,
-- a light source (flashlight or cell phone),
-- a few assorted transparent, translucent, and opaque, such as glass, cellophane, tissue paper, cardboard, foil, etc.

This family-friendly program is suitable for ages 5 and up.A graphic showing weather and weather instruments and data.

Date and time: 21 January 2022 at 12:00 - 05:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.


Please join us to learn from, connect with, and celebrate community and citizen science in the atmospheric sciences.

This program will focus on exploring existing community and citizen science programs. We’ll hear from leaders with NASA’s GLOBE program, the National Weather Service, CoCoRaHS, and AGU’s Thriving Earth Exchange on how they work with community and citizen science, how and where citizen scientists make the biggest impact, and how your own observations can contribute to everything from community safety to satellite data.
