    Default The Magic of Clouds

    Have you ever looked up at the sky, and really watched the clouds and wonder why the clouds do what they do






    Almost every day when I venture outside, I look towards the sky and marvel at just what a beautiful creation, our creator, made the sky.

    The clouds and the rain are quite magical in my eyes.

    What makes the clouds clump together the way they do, and not dissipate quickly

    How can a cloud, which contains rain, which is obviously heavier than the air underneath it, still stay up so high in the sky, and give us all those wonderful shades of white and grey.

    Perhaps others might have solved the mystery of it, however I thought it would be really neat to point out to others just how beautiful the sky is in our world.

    In some ways, I think the sky was created for the same reason creation gave us the flower. Just to be beautiful.

    It's the mystery that I am still trying to solve. I wish there is an explanation out there that isn't flawed when scrutinized. I know that I can create something if I can explain the phenomena " comprehend and copy nature" V. Schauberger.

    It's not supposed to condense up there because the higher you go the lower the pressure and then it gets hotter as it gets closer to the sun. Anyone help in explaining please.

    It doesn't get hotter. It gets colder. The further apart air molecules are the less heat can reflect or absorb radiant sun energy, and the more the cold of vacuum in space is felt.

    And I agree, there is sublime beauty in clouds. I lie on my back on my trampoline to watch the sky.

    I have been admiring clouds my entire life, I have collected some incredible photographs of clouds from around the globe. There is no greater pleasure than to look at a magnificent cloud formation and feel humbled. It speaks to your soul and gives you the smallest of understanding of how wonderful the creator truly is!

    'I've looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down-from win and lose, and still somehow, it's clouds illusions I recall...I really don't know clouds, at all'. Joni Mitchell

    I could not resist quoting that wonderful song, talk about germane...Anyway I have been a cloud watcher since childhood, I test myself and try to 'Bust' them-sometimes it seems to work
    you can demand there is blue there in your sky, and the cloud dissipates, whereas it seemed solid and there to stay a few minutes prior; I don't know how real that is, but it is a grand game...
    I love sometimes when the forces of creation seem to gather in the sky and presents a mystic picture to us crimson, smoky ragged glory. Great thread.

    This very strange and unusual roll cloud was recently filmed over Amarillo,Texas, it is normally associated with thunderstorms. At the end of this short video you can clearly see that the cloud is moving at a very rapid pace. It was visible in the sky for only 15 minutes.

    More funky cloud formations in the sky over the Space Coast of Florida. They were taken at about 6:30 pm yesterday, looking west.

    Images 1 and 2: They are the same image, one the original and the other with an equalizer filter. In the lower left hand corner, just above the tree line, there is a cloud that looks like the Eye of Horus, and there even seems to be a tiny pyramid on top of it.

    Image 3: Taken a minute or two later, the eye is gone but now there is this black cloud that looks a lot like a pyramid.

    I took this photo a couple of months ago. At the top, you will see two faces formed by clouds -- they looked like women to me. I applied an art filter on Luna Pic, and, yes, they definitely look like two women. They must be watching from another dimension, and are either mildly concerned or having a laugh over how the game is playing out in the 3-D world.

    More "magical" cloud forms. This one looks like a bearded male humanoid looking down upon the landscape. Photos include the original, with some brightness adjustment, and the original photo with a LunaPic art filter.

    I was astonished to learn how much clouds weigh.

    Have you ever tried cloud bursting? Just stare at a cloud and intend for a hole to appear? It's kind of cool when it happens over and over again.
