The Science Behind Cloud Colors

The Science Behind Cloud Colors

Everchanging cloud formations can be mesmerizing in the sky. Did you know the light a cloud receives from the sun determines its color? Each color in the visible spectrum represents electromagnetic waves of differing lengths. As the wavelength increases, the colors change. Some of the most picturesque clouds occur close to sunrise and sunset when they appear in brilliant yellows, oranges, and reds. In the case of thicker clouds, such as stratus, sunlight passes through but is blocked, which gives clouds a grayish appearance.
