We are the Cloud Sisters, Mary Shedd and Suzanne Winckler, from northern Minnesota. We are seeking friends and business sponsors to bring Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society, to the Science Museum of Minnesota, in St. Paul, on October 22, 2019. Climatologist Mark Seeley will introduce Gavin. 

We ask for your support so the event will be FREE for everyone who wants to learn about clouds.

Gavin will take you on an illustrated tour of the sky in his talk CLOUDSPOTTING FOR BEGINNERS

He will explain why clouds look the way they do and how they reveal the invisible movements of our atmosphere. You will learn how to recognize many beautiful cloud formations—from the fair-weather cotton tufts of cumulus to the UFO shapes of lenticularis. You will see why cloudspotting is the perfect antidote to the pressures of the digital world and you will discover that spending a few moments each day with your head in the clouds will help you better appreciate our amazing atmosphere.

Please help us bring Gavin to Minnesota. Looking up will never be the same again!

Check out the Cloud Appreciation Society at It is an international community with more than 47,000 members in 120 countries.

Thank you,

Mary Shedd, Member 42,189

Tuesday, October 22, 2019, 7 p.m.
