Clouds Come and Go

By Jerry At Ays

It’s always interesting to see things from different points of… time. Things that normally happen slowly can reveal surprises when sped up.

We usually think of a cloud as a big fluffy white thing that floats along as a more-or-less “solid” object. Here we can see that they really appear and disappear, forming and vanishing and re-forming many times over a period of time.

When the weather’s nice, take some time out with your young scientist to lie back and watch the clouds go by. It’s a good way to observe a part of nature as well as enjoy a little unexpected beauty.
