OUT OF A CLEAR BLUE SKY ….

 

It is fascinating to see in the news this week the latest attempt on the part of scientists to create rainclouds where no rainclouds existed before, in Abu Dhabi, which is very hot and very dry.

The system they are using involves huge ionizers which

promote cloud-formation in the atmosphere.

Other experiments elsewhere have mainly been conducted

where there are cloudy skies, and “cloud-seeding” precipitates rain.

But in Abu Dhabi rain has been falling out of a completely cloudless sky, which is rather remarkable!
