Moon: new Illustration of the moon undergoing phases: new moon. The Moon, in its monthly orbital motion around Earth, lies between Earth and the Sun, and is therefore in conjunction with the Sun as seen from Earth. At this time, the dark (unilluminated) portion of the Moon faces almost directly toward Earth, so that the Moon is not visible to the naked eye. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,atmosphere,sky,tide,tidal,effect,moon,lunar,space,night

Weather; cyclone (S Hemisphere) Illustration of a hurricane, or tropical cyclone: a storm system characterized by a low pressure center and numerous thunderstorms that produce strong winds and flooding rain. Depending on its location and strength, a tropical cyclone is referred to by names such as hurricane, typhoon, tropical storm, cyclonic storm, tropical depression, and simply cyclone. Has counterclockwise rotation in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise rotation in the Southern Hemisphere due to the Coriolis Effect. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,hurricane,typhoon,tropical,storm,cyclonic,storm,tropical,depression,cyclone

High clouds: Cirrocumulus Illustration of a cirrocumulus cloud, a large, white patch or tuft without a gray shadow. Composed of supercooled liquid droplets (if they freeze, becomes cirrostratus - cirrocumuli are short lived) Each cloudlet appears no larger than a finger held at arms length. It occurs in patches or sheets, organized in rows like other cumulus, but since they are so small, cirrocumulus patches take on a finer appearance, sometimes referred to colloquially as "herringbone" or "mackerel". symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,cloud,herringbone,mackerel,sky

High clouds: Cirrus Illustration of cirrus clouds, which are characterized by thin, wisplike strands, often accompanied by tufts, leading to their common (non-standard) name of mare's tail. Cirrus clouds are formed when water vapor freezes into ice crystals at altitudes above 8000 meters (26,000 ft). Due to the sparse moisture at a high altitude, they tend to be very thin. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,ice

Low clouds: Stratocumulus 1 Illustration of stratocumulus clouds, belonging to a class characterized by large dark, rounded masses, usually in groups, lines, or waves. Weak convective currents create shallow cloud layers because of drier, stable air above preventing continued vertical development. Vast areas of subtropical and polar oceans are covered with massive sheets of stratocumuli. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,

Middle clouds: Altocumulus 1 Illustration of a cloud belonging to a class characterized by globular masses or rolls in layers or patches. Alto, "high", cumulus, "heaped". Usually white or gray, and often occurs in sheets or patches with wavy, rounded masses or rolls. Often are seen preceding a cold front, and their presence on a warm, humid, summer morning frequently signals the development of thunderstorms later in the day. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,thunderstorms

Middle clouds: Nimbostratus 1 Illustration of a nimbostratus cloud, a rain cloud characterized by a formless layer that is almost uniformly dark gray, of medium altitude, usually developing above 6500 ft (2000 m). Nimbo is from the Latin word "nimbus" meaning rain. They may block a great amount of sunlight as a result of their characteristic dense structure. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,cloudy,raincloud,nimbo
