April 3 – C (posted early)

Letter C in the Blogging from A-Z April challenge
These are the Dandenong Ranges that are to the east of Melbourne
You can faintly see the tv masts that serve Melbourne and surrounding areas 
The masts can be seen from so many nearby suburbs
and I’ve featured them in lots of posts
Todays letter is C and I could have chosen Cats
but decided that was a bit obvious for me
so chose to look at Clouds
These big fluffy ones below were over the hills on Wednesday
and just itching to be snapped
These photos were taken at the footy oval in Kilsyth
not far from where I live
and where you can get a long shot of the hills
And if I had rembered to use the panoramic setting on the camera
thats what you would have seen lol
to see these in more detail
click photos to enlarge 
Thinking about this post I did some reseach
(Some may remember I didn’t know the name of the clouds in my last Skywatch post)
and discovered :
There are ten main cloud types, which are further divided into 27 sub-types according to their height shape, colour and associated weather,
Apart from their beauty and interest, clouds can provide a useful indication of weather conditions, and weather observers at some 500 locations around Australia send regular reports to Bureau of Meteorology forecasting Offices on cloud types, height, and the amount of sky covered.
A cloud is a visible mass of droplets, in other words, little drops of water or frozen crystals suspended in the atmosphere above the surface of the Earth or another planetary body. A cloud is also a visible mass attracted by gravity, such as masses of material in space called interstellar clouds and nebulae. Clouds are studied in the nephology or cloud physics branch of meteorology
There are lots of descriptions and photographs on these links 
This is a very basic site for children
Posted early as this is also my post for Skywatch Friday
