Watch the Cloud Appreciation Society 2019 Sky Gathering LIVE . We are streaming all the talks and performances during our Sky Gathering on the small English island of Lundy. This a former pirate island turned wildlife haven is situated in the Bristol Channel at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. During the Sky Gathering, we will spend our afternoons disconnected from the outside world, on walks and creative workshops. In the mornings, we will hear experts speakers talking about the art, science and culture of the sky. These we are broadcasting here online, live and direct. But there is no internet or phone signal on Lundy. So we are rigging up a couple of portable satellite dishes on stands outside the island church. What could possibly go wrong? .

This fog is following the river along the foot of Mount Eglinton, New Zealand. As air rises off the mountain’s sun-warmed slopes, cooler air is drawn across the valley floor from the shaded side to replace it. Passing over Eglinton River, this cool air mixes with the evaporation lifting off the warm waters to form a low line of fog known as river smoke. .

cloudappsoc's Media: This chain of vortices appearing in a layer of marine Stratocumulus was spotted over the North Atla

This chain of vortices appearing in a layer of marine Stratocumulus was spotted over the North Atlantic by the MODIS instrument aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite. The island of Madeira is at the top right and the Canary Islands at the bottom right. These alternating vortices are the same that appear as eddies in a stream as it flows around a rock, the same that form invisibly in the airflow around power lines causing them to vibrate and hum in a gale. At certain speeds, the steady flow of a gas or fluid around any blunt obstacle naturally sets up an oscillation of these alternating vortices. Known as a ‘von Kármán vortex street’ after Theodore von Kármán, the physicist who did the maths, the cloud version is the largest example of the effect to be found on Earth. .

A corona is an optical effect produced by light from the Sun or Moon diffracting around tiny atmospheric particles like pollen, ash, dust and, yes, ice crystals or droplets of water. The light waves bend as they pass around the tiny obstacles and overlap each other in a way that can result in rings of colour. The central brilliant white circle around the Sun or Moon is called the ‘aureole’. All coronae show this, but not all show the outer rainbow-coloured rings. These only appear when the particles producing the effect are all about the same size as each other and all very small. The size of the particles determines the size of the corona. The slightly larger particles produce small coronae, while tinier ones produce large coronae. We can therefore say with smug confidence that the water droplets in this Cirrostratus, judging by their fine corona, are very evenly sized and very tiny. .
