“””clouds”””

A cloud is a visible mass of droplets or frozen crystals floating in the atmosphere above the surface of the Earth or another planetary body. A cloud is also a visible mass attracted by gravity (clouds can also occur as masses of material in interstellar space, where they are called interstellar clouds and nebulae.) The branch of meteorology in which clouds are studied is nephology or cloud physics.


This one is a dark clouds or a stormy clouds.

Clouds form when relatively warm air containing water vapor is lighter than its surrounding air and this causes it to rise. As it rises it cools and the vapor condenses out of the air as micro-droplets. These tiny particles of water are relatively densely packed and sunlight cannot penetrate far into the cloud before it is reflected out, giving a cloud its characteristic white color. As a cloud matures, the droplets may combine to produce larger droplets, which may combine to form droplets large enough to fall as rain.

A nice cloud

Cirrocumulus cloud

Cirrocumulus clouds we take this picture because we like the forms of the clouds.
It’s an opposite direction and it’s like a pearl in the sea.
at the top of the picture you can see its like a pearl at the bottom part
the scattered form of the clouds


Cirrostratus Clouds

Cirrostratus Clouds this clouds is
thin, it’s composed of ice-crystals capable forming of “HALOS”.
When thick enough to be seen, they are whitish,
usually with no distinguishing features

Cirrus cloud

Cirrus clouds are characterized by thin, wisplike strands, often accompanied by tufts, leading to their common name of

“ mare’s tail ”

The directions of these winds can also vary.

Stratocumulus cloud

stratocumulus-001

Stratocumulus clouds is belong to a class by large dark, rounded masses, usually in groups, lines, or waves.
When these drift over land the summer heat or winter cold is reduced

Altocumulus Clouds

Altocumulus clouds consist of a thin sheet of white or gray clouds that are broken into bands, blobs, rolls or waves. Altocumulus are middle atmosphere clouds which means that they are not the highest or lowest clouds in the sky, they fit in the middle. These types of clouds form when there is moisture present in a wet air mass. Altocumulus clouds can sometimes mean that it will rain or snow. The name altocumulus means middle height and heap, therefore these clouds are puffy and found in the middle of the atmosphere.
