About this Event

Join Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society and author of A Cloud A Day (Batsford), as he takes you on an illustrated tour of the sky. In this enlightening and entertaining talk, he will show how to recognise many of the varied and beautiful cloud formations, from the fair-weather cotton tufts of Cumulus to the UFO shapes of lenticularis clouds and the surreal undulations of fluctus clouds. Gavin will explain why clouds look the way they do and how they reveal the invisible movements of our atmosphere. You will learn why clouds are the most evocative and poetic aspect of nature, how cloudspotting is the perfect antidote to the pressures of the digital world, and why spending a few moments each day with your head in the clouds will help you keep your feet on the ground. Looking up will never be the same again!
