Clouds are neither fluffy nor hard in nature. Cloud is a colloidal form of water in air, it is just like mist or fog. Clouds do not have a form, it is just suspended in air and moves in the direction of air. One can feel the clouds while they fly in an airplane, it just feels like a smoky area nothing more than that.
Unfortunately, it does not feel like cotton balls or cotton candy, but most people have technically touched a cloud before. If you wanted to touch an airborne cloud, the best way to do this is either skydiving or in a hot air balloon, though I would not want to be stuck in a cloud while in a hot air balloon.
Nope. You can’t sit on a cloud, because there’s really nothing there. What you think of as a cloud is basically just air. It looks the way it looks because there are many, many, many tiny droplets of water suspended in the air, which refract the light and make them look white (or gray, depending on conditions).

Answer: we can’t touch the sky.
Fill about 1/3 of your jar with the hot water. Quickly remove the lid, spray some into the jar, and quickly put the lid back on. You should see a cloud forming. Watch what’s happening inside the jar, the air is condensing, creating a cloud.
A cloud doesn’t usually FALL to the ground (unless you count rain, which isn’t really a cloud anymore, but it is the water FROM the cloud). But it is very common for a cloud to FORM on the ground, and it is called fog.
“When we see grey clouds, they have a large concentration of water droplets,” says Associate Professor Lane. “Although most clouds look light and fluffy, they are in fact highly turbulent with very strong air currents within them and an enormous mass of suspended water,” he says.
It would either be very foggy or very wet if they fell all at once emptied our atmosphere of all water vapor. The results would vary on the terrain and it’s ability to handle high levels of rainfall. Rivers can only hold so much . major flooding some areas would just soak it up.
Clouds consist of microscopic droplets of liquid water (warm clouds), tiny crystals of ice (cold clouds), or both (mixed phase clouds). Cloud droplets initially form by the condensation of water vapor onto condensation nuclei when the supersaturation of air exceeds a critical value according to Köhler theory.
No you cannot touch a rainbow because it’s not a physical object, but rather it’s a reflection, refraction and dispersion of sunlight inside water droplets in the atmosphere. The cause of the rainbow may be by many forms of water in the air like rain, mist, spray, and airborne dew etc.
As for water droplet clouds of the sort that normally occur in more typical weather, they may make you quite wet by dumping rain on you, but they won’t “crush” you.
Cloudbursts are infrequent as they occur only via the ‘orographic lift’ or occasionally when a warm air parcel mixes with cooler air, resulting in sudden condensation. The term ‘cloudburst’ was coined from the notion that clouds were akin to water balloons and could burst, resulting in rapid precipitation.
It extends from Earth’s surface to an average height of about 12 km, although this altitude actually varies from about 9 km (30,000 ft) at the poles to 17 km (56,000 ft) at the equator, with some variation due to weather.
There is no such thing as the sky, just as there is no such thing as a rainbow or the horizon. These terms are labels for illusory objects. The sky is “the region of the atmosphere and outer space seen from the Earth”, which is quite ambiguous. Indeed, the sky is not really a physical thing or region.
Clouds smell like wht is cooking at the period in time and the scent is rising.
As far as eating it goes, you’re not really going to see any adverse effects other than gas and skewed readings from your bathroom scales. Again, eating a little water is not going to do you any harm. It’s distilled water with no impurities so will probably taste nice too.
When clouds are thin, they let a large portion of the light through and appear white. But like any objects that transmit light, the thicker they are, the less light makes it through. As their thickness increases, the bottoms of clouds look darker but still scatter all colors. We perceive this as gray.
A typical cloud has a volume of around 1km3 and a density of around 1.003kg per m3 – about 0.4 per cent lower than that of the surrounding air, which is why they float. So cranking through the maths, that means that a typical cloud weighs around a million tonnes.
A 1 cubic kilometer (km3) cloud contains 1 billion cubic meters. Doing the math: 1,000,000,000 x 0.5 = 500,000,000 grams of water droplets in our cloud. That is about 500,000 kilograms or 1.1 million pounds (about 551 tons).
Just like daytime rainbows, moonbows need the light from the moon to be reflected and refracted by water droplets at a certain angle to create a rainbow. Rather than seeing the full spectrum of colours, moonbows often appear to be white to the human eye.
Double rainbows, which follow the same arc as each other, occur when sunlight is internally reflected as it passes through the raindrops. On rare occasions rays of light are reflected three times within a rain drop and a triple rainbow is produced.
It seems strange, but the atmosphere, or sky, doesn’t actually “end”. Instead, the higher up you go, the thinner – and less oxygenated – it gets. At some height – most people say this is about 100km above sea level – the atmosphere becomes so thin that you could begin to think of yourself as being in space.
Earth’s polar radius is 3,950 miles (6,356 km) — a difference of 13 miles (22 km). Using those measurements, the equatorial circumference of Earth is about 24,901 miles (40,075 km). However, from pole to pole — the meridional circumference — Earth is only 24,860 miles (40,008 km) around.
Common things that we can see in the sky are clouds, raindrops, the Sun, the Moon, stars, airplanes, kites, and birds. The Moon and stars are in the sky during the day, but we cannot usually see them because during the day, the Sun brightens the sky. The Sun is actually a star, and it is the closest star to the Earth.
Even though a cloud weighs tons, it doesn’t fall on you because the rising air responsible for its formation keeps the cloud floating in the air. The air below the cloud is denser than the cloud, thus the cloud floats on top of the denser air nearer the land surface.
cloudburst, a sudden, very heavy rainfall, usually local in nature and of brief duration. Most so-called cloudbursts occur in connection with thunderstorms. In these storms there are violent uprushes of air, which at times prevent the condensing raindrops from falling to the ground.
As it turns out, several of the astronauts that have gone space-walking have reported a distinct odor at exactly this moment. Folks have said space smells like hot metal and seared meats.
But the truth is that the sun itself doesn’t have a smell — or if it does, we can’t get a whiff of it. So what we’re left with is the “smell” of outside air. In warm air, they circulate freely, while in cold air, they move slower [source: Sohn]. A warm day will simply produce more smells, in other words.
No clouds means no rain, ice, or snow. That means drinking-water supplies wouldn’t get replenished. Water shortages also spell trouble for power plants that rely on heating fresh water. Without clouds to reflect light from the sun, global temperatures would spike.
Some clouds are high up in the sky. Low clouds form closer to Earth’s surface. In fact, low clouds can even touch the ground. These clouds are called fog.
Clouds of pyroclastic flow are probably one of the more lethal things occurring in nature. See the story of Pompeii for a vivid example. The other danger from normal (water droplet) clouds is that they obscure visibility and in many circumstances that can be lethal.
Originally Answered: What does it feel like to fall through a cloud? – A storm cloud can contain hail: meeting hail gace-forward whikle going at over 100 MPH is painful. Even rain drops will hurt you at such speeds.
Clouds appear white because of scattering. The droplets in clouds are big compared to the wavelength of light, so all wavelengths scatter the same. These are much tinier than the wavelength of light, so blue light scatters much more than red.
Nimbus are rain clouds.
Definitely birds can fly through the clouds, rather they have to fly through them to get into the jet stream.
Rainbows are actually full circles. The antisolar point is the center of the circle. Viewers in aircraft can sometimes see these circular rainbows. Viewers on the ground can only see the light reflected by raindrops above the horizon.
As mentioned above, fire rainbows are rare. The source of light—the Sun (or Moon)—needs to be at least 58o above the horizon, meaning that fire rainbow is almost impossible to see in places north of 55oN or south of 55oS.
