Prompts: “The Cloudspotter’s Guide”

Cld

"
  A quirky, clever guide for everyone who loves to look up.

Where do clouds come from? Why do they look the way they do? And why
have they captured the imagination of timeless artists, Romantic poets,
and every kid who’s ever held a crayon? Journalist and lifelong sky
watcher Gavin Pretor-Pinney reveals everything there is to know about

nimbostratus, and the dramatic and seemingly surfable Morning Glory

classical paintings to lava lamps, children’s drawings, and Roman
coins, The Cloudspotter’s Guide will have science and history buffs, weather watchers, and the just plain curious floating on cloud nine…"
