Clouds are large groups of tiny water droplets (vapor) or ice crystals that cling to pieces of dust in the atmosphere. In fact, without clouds, it wouldn’t rain or snow! They come in all different shapes and sizes. Some are really low to the ground and some are way high up in the sky.
An arch of colours visible in the sky, caused by the refraction and dispersion of the sun’s light by rain or other water droplets in the atmosphere. The colours of the rainbow are generally said to be red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
Britain is covered in layer of dust after African storms carry in sand
from the Sahara desert 2,000 miles away.
