Anvil clouds, known officially as ‘incus’, form in the upper parts of Cumulonimbus thunderstorms and spread out like, well, anvils as the storms’ updrafts reach the tropopause. The boundary region between the troposphere below and the stratosphere above, this is where the profile of temperature change with altitude tends top stop rising air in its tracks. If the updrafts are powerful enough, however, they can punch through the invisible ceiling of the tropopause to form ‘overshooting tops’ like these spotted in 2016 by astronaut Tim Peake aboard the International Space Station. The storms beneath overshooting tops tend to be severe. Updrafts with this much energy can support the weight of some serious hailstones. . Photo credit: ESA/NASA .

It is not often that a cloud is given a name, but this Cumulonimbus storm cloud has one. It is called ‘Hector the Convector’, and it forms practically every afternoon from September through to March over the Tiwi Islands north of Darwin, Australia. The cloud is enormous, often reaching to altitudes as high as 12 miles (20 km). Hector’s name was given to it by WWII pilots for whom the steadfast dependability of its position made it a natural navigation marker that was visible from great distances. . ‘Hector the Convector’ spotted by ‘Watto’ off the coast of Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia. .

Low clouds, like these sunset Cumulus spotted by Jim Miller (Member 45,129) over Great Ayton, Middlesbrough, England tend to look dark and shaded on the side away from the Sun. This is because they consist of droplets that are very tiny and very plentiful. Compared with the more translucent high clouds consisting of larger, fewer ice crystals, these low Cumulus appear more ‘optically dense’. The surfaces of their multitudinous little droplets scatter the sunlight more effectively. Less light passes through, and so their shaded sides appear darker. To the art historians who rhapsodise about the ‘chiaroscuro’ technique used by Renaissance artists to heighten the drama of their paintings with contrasting light and dark tones, we’d like to point out that Cumulus clouds have been banging out dramatic masterpieces like this on a daily basis. .

Bands of pastel colours sometimes appear spread across high clouds like this Cirrostratus. They’re caused by the sunlight bending as it passes around the tiny particles of the cloud. The optical effect is known as ‘diffraction’ and the different wavelengths that make up sunlight bend by different amounts. This has the effect of separating out the wavelengths, which in isolation look coloured to us. The colours only show when cloud’s droplets or ice crystals have a very consistent size and are very small – each one just a thousandth of the width of a human hair. .
