seven different photographs taken by GLOBE Observers of sky and clouds from around the world. The first one is an image of ice, mountains, and clouds taken from a ship. The second is a gray sky completely covered by clouds. The clouds look flat with some bulges to them. The third is taken in the horizon and you can see clouds, mountains, and houses. The clouds are layered and look gray. You can also see orange colors in the horizon. The fourth is a photo of thing clouds in the horizon with orange colors in the bottom and gray to dark blue on the top. The fifth image is of altocumulus clouds that look like gray cotton balls all smooshed together and the sun slightly visible right on the center. The sixth is an image of the sun peaking over mountains, trees, and snow, and mid level clouds. The last image is of blue skies to the top of the image and a line of cumulus clouds and stratus clouds covering the bottom of the image.

The GLOBE Clouds team is delighted to announce this new section that showcases sky and cloud photographs from around the world! We’ve also been receiving some amazing questions from students.

The featured question was asked by students from Corpus Christi Catholic School:

Question: Why can we see clouds but not evaporation?
Answer: Water vapor is invisible. However, the water in clouds is in liquid or solid state, not gas.
