Spend summer together by discovering clouds from a new perspective. There are many ways to participate. The sky’s the limit. Learn more about clouds with NASA scientists and educators each Thursday on NASA Earth’s Facebook page, do at-home activities, or take cloud or sky observations through the Clouds tool on GLOBE or the GLOBE Observer app. It is up to you! Share how you took part in this unique event on social media.

Choose how you want to participate

  • Learn about clouds with NASA scientists and educators: Every Thursday @ noon EST starting on July 9th you will get a chance to learn more about clouds from NASA scientists. Watch the video premier on Facebook (@NASAEarth) and ask questions. Each week will also feature a video of a related activity that can be done at home.
  • Do an At-Home Activity: Do the weekly featured activity and share your results with us through social media using #GLOBE or by tagging GLOBE. You can also complete other activities from the cloud activity tracker as you participate.
  • Take Cloud and Sky Observations:Safety first! Just like NASA scientists, we ask that you always be safe and follow your local regulations. Taking observations is optional for this event. If it’s safe, you can help by submitting clouds, dust, haze or smoke observations to GLOBE using any of GLOBE’s data entry tools including the clouds tool on the GLOBE Observer mobile app. GLOBE welcomes citizen scientists, educators, students and STEM professionals.
