6 types of clouds you have never seen before

As you already know, 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.

All air contains water, but near the ground it is usually in the form of an invisible gas called water vapor. 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.

Clouds are given different names based on their shape and their height in the sky. Some clouds are near the ground. Others are almost as high as jet planes fly. Some are puffy like cotton.

Others are grey and uniform and today we have discovered 6 types of them you have never seen or heard of before. Scroll down and enjoy the natural sky art!
