Learn to become a cloudspotter. Learn to read the sky. In this entertaining and revealing talk, Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society, will show you how to recognize distinctive cloud formations from the common Cumulus to the rare and fleeting ‘fluctus’ cloud. With stunning images sent in from around the world by members of the Cloud Appreciation Society, Gavin will demonstrate the value of engaging with the sky and show you why cloudspotting is the perfect antidote to the pressures of the digital world. Looking up will never be the same again!

With over 44,000 members in 120 countries around the world, the Cloud Appreciation Society exists to unite people who believe that the sky is the most dynamic, evocative and poetic of nature's displays.


Gavin Pretor-Pinney is founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society and author of the bestselling Cloudspotter's Guide and Cloud Collector's Handbook. His third book, The Wave Watcher's Companion, won the UK's prestigious Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books. A TED Global speaker, Gavin has presented television documentaries for the BBC, and is a Visiting Fellow at the University of Reading, UK. He is co-founded The Idler, a magazine that argues for the importance of downtime in creative thinking.
