Weather Science:  Making a Cloud
1. Pour hot water into clear jar.  Fill 3/4.
2. Cover opening with metal cup, filled with ice.
3.  Observe water vapor forming on sides of jar as warm air rises and meets cold air.
4.  Lift cold cup and spray small amount of hairspray into jar.
*Vapor in nature needs environmental particles (such as dust) to attach to*
5.  Wait a moment or two for vapor to attach to particles.
6.  Lift cup and watch cloud rise.
