The "For Spacious Skies" Program
A program started by Jack Borden, former television reporter in Boston, MA, to educate our children to "Look up" and become aware of the sky.
The following chart is a Skywatcher Chart showing some of the basic cloud types and atmospheric phenomona one normally will see.
This is the "National Weather Service" version of our chart
The FSS Skywatcher's Cloud Chart is the "Gold Standard" in its field.
We are proud of its being first choice of The Weather Channel, The American Meteorological Society and The National Weather Service's Southern Region which extends from Florida to New Mexico and the entire Caribbean.
24x35-it is a beautiful, educational attraction in classroom, dormitory, office, home, laboratory, boat. In short--wherever there is a sky and a curious, safety- minded, appreciative viewer.
Most of its 36 beautiful photos and all captions are by Dr. John "Cloudman" Day--author of the celebrated "Book of Clouds" and co-author of "The Peterson Field Guide to the Atmosphere" deemed the most enduringly popular among all sky classics.
The Chart's premium .03 lamination permits easy roll-up for hikers and for use under the harshest field conditions. It is shipped in the highest quality, crush-resistant tube.
