SKY AWARENESS WEEK - Last Full Week in April

Sky Awareness Week


The last full week of April is National Sky Awareness Week (SAW). The goal is to get people to look up, notice sky conditions, variant colors, the clouds and how they’re moving.


Get outside and practice nephelococcygia – the art of finding shapes in the clouds.

See how meteorology, astronomy, geology, oceanography and hydrology blend with other sciences to create the environment. Go to the source of Sky Awareness Week:
