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. .

A tall dust devil spins its way over the prairies near Dayton, Eastern Washington state, US, spotted by Tom Bean (Member 41,135). Superficially similar to tornadoes that form at the bases of storm clouds, dust devils tend to form in the absence of clouds – in hot, dry conditions when strong thermals develop off the sun-baked ground. No wind, a flat landscape and lots of sunshine result in hot air close to the ground overlaid by much cooler air above. The devil starts when a particularly hot pocket of air rises as a thermal up through the cool layer above, creating an updraft that lifts dust from the surface and draws the surrounding hot air in towards it. The column of air thins as it rises and can soon take on a spin, which induces forward momentum. Once it's traveling, the dust devil may reach an area of cooler surface air. As this is sucked into the vortex, the energy of the thermal is turned off and in a matter of seconds the devil dissipates into the haze. .

When the British artist John Brett painted a view of the sea from the south coast of England in 1871, he showed fair-weather Cumulus clouds and ‘crepuscular rays’ of sunlight shining down onto the water’s surface. Although Brett clearly loved the play of light in the atmosphere, he was no cloudspotter. The sky above doesn't match the light on the sea below. The artist must have combined the sky from one day with the sea from another. Such beams of light appear when a layer of low cloud called Stratocumulus covers the sky with gaps that let the sunlight shine through. They never result from a gentle scattering of Cumulus like this. Nice try, Brett, but no cloudspotting cigar. .

This image of the gas giant Jupiter was taken a couple of weeks ago by NASA’s Juno spacecraft. It shows the dynamic belts of cloud in the planet’s temperate regions. The immense currents within Jupiter’s atmosphere are revealed by the cloudy white band flowing from the top left to bottom right of the photograph. Named ‘Jet N2’, this is actually a jet stream flowing above the planet’s main cloud layers and many thousands of times wider than the jet streams found here on Earth. .
