  National Weather Observers Day!
When is National look up at the Sky Day? Always  May 4th!

What is this holiday all about?
This holiday honors all people who love to observe the weather! The aim of this holiday is to have fun learning and observing the weather for the day. It's a lot of fun to simply share stories and weather photos from past weather observing and to continue the tradition of this holiday by having a weather observing party in your very own  back yard. Get out the cameras, lounge chairs and party food; invite your friends and family to a day of weather watching. This is one holiday that doesn't get rained out. In fact it would make the holiday perfect for a weather observing day. Get the community together with a few covered tents and party on through the wind, rain or snow. The kids will love it!

Weather is quite the wonder for most of us- There are so many weather enthusiasts, there is actually a group of amateur weather observers called "The Association of American Weather Observers" ( http://www.aawo.net) from around the United States. "Their aim is to educate the public on weather awareness-and to simply share stories among themselves on recent extreme weather that they viewed at their location." also see wikipedia

Definition of "weather"
"Weather is a set of all the phenomena occurring in a given atmosphere at a given time. Weather phenomena lie in the troposphere. Weather refers to current activity, as opposed to the term climate, which refers to the average atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time. When used without qualification, "weather" is understood to be the weather of Earth."

"Weather occurs due to density (temperature and moisture) differences between one place and another. These differences can occur due to the sun angle at any particular spot, which varies by latitude from the tropics. The strong temperature contrast between polar and tropical air gives rise to the jet stream. Weather systems in the mid-latitudes, such as extratropical cyclones, are caused by instabilities of the jet stream flow. Because the Earth's axis is tilted relative to its orbital plane, sunlight is incident at different angles at different times of the year. On Earth's surface, temperatures usually range ±40 °C (100 °F to −40 °F) annually. Over thousands to hundreds of thousands of years, changes in Earth's orbit affect the amount and distribution of solar energy received by the Earth and influence long-term climate"
