These storm clouds over New Mexico are eerie and magical.
We turn to Wiz Kids for a reminder of the basics and some cool cloud facts.
“A cloud is a large collection of very tiny droplets of water or ice crystals. The droplets are so small and light that they can float in the air. When warm air rises, it expands and cools. Cool air can’t hold as much water vapor as warm air, so some of the vapor condenses onto tiny pieces of dust that are floating in the air and forms a tiny droplet around each dust particle. When billions of these droplets come together they become a visible cloud.”
