NASA wants you to send them pictures of clouds

Orlando, Fla. — Thin clouds, tall clouds, or fluffy clouds.

No matter the type, NASA is asking the public to snap a picture of the sky for its GLOBE Program.

From October 15 to November 15 citizen scientists can submit up to 10 cloud observations per day using the GLOBE Observer app.

The Fall Cloud Challenge is intended to create a global network of citizen scientists  to help understand changes in the atmosphere.

“We want to do a data challenge in the fall and see if there are any differences from what was observed during the spring data challenge of 2018," said Marilé Colón Robles, lead for the GLOBE Clouds Team at NASA's Langley Research Center.

"What our eyes can see is difficult to fully duplicate with instruments. Merging these views is what makes a complete and impactful story."
