On  Monday, January 10, Dr. Jessica Taylor from NASA's Langley Research Center shared with us how you can provide data to NASA even on cloudy days with the NASA GLOBE program and the  upcoming Cloud Challenge!

What to do when clouds fill the view of your sky? Turn this into a citizen science opportunity! Join the GLOBE Cloud Challenge: Clouds in a Changing Climate from January 15-February 15, 2022. Your observations documenting what’s in the sky are helpful to scientists. Participants are encouraged to download the GLOBE Observer app to start contributing to this volunteer science community.
