The figure shows six figures, placed in two rows. Thus three are on the left and another three on the right.

The figure above, the left row, shows us a cloud. It is outlined with a curved line, is shaped like a ball of down or a pillow or cotton wool, and floats in the sky above the ground. The cloud is composed, in fact, of a dense air mass, that is a lot, in a small area. The fact that we can draw it, although the air is not visible, is due to the fact that this fluffy air cushion is also composed of water vapor and very small ice crystals. When it is overloaded with water in the form of vapor, meaning very very small, microscopic drops, then it starts to rain from it with larger drops of water, which we can feel. This phenomenon is called supersaturation. Meaning, the cloud is full, it’s tired of so much water that it’s pouring rain on us. When under the cloud there is a very cold mass of air, these drops of water that fall from it freeze, just like the water in the freezer freezes and we can make ice cubes. Frozen drops fall to the ground like snowflakes, so it snows.

The figure in the middle, the left row, shows us an umbrella. It is mushroom-shaped, with a round and wide part at the top, slightly curved and a stick with a handle at the bottom, to be held. It is opened and positioned vertically. The top of the umbrella is a large piece of cloth that can be stretched when you open it, or tightened on the stick when you close it. The umbrella is a very useful object for us, when it rains, because it protects us from rainwater so that we do not get wet. We also use it when the sun is too strong and its rays burn our skin, to keep us in the shade, that is, it acts as a barrier, as a protective wall between us and the sun, and we can enjoy a longer time in a summer day at the beach, for example, without stinging our skin.

The bottom figure, the left row, shows us a lightning, arrow-shaped with several short points on sides and a long tip in the bottom. Basically, this is how a lightning bolt is seen in the sky, like a broken line, which we can show by gestures or in writing, up and down, up and down. Lightning is the electrical energy that is formed between two clouds by rubbing the air masses between them. When we rub our palms we warm up. So it is with new clouds that meet. The result is lightning, a spark that descends under the cloud to the ground or may not touch the ground. It is also called electric shock, when it touches the ground.

The figure at the top, the right row, shows us a snowflake. The snow that settles in a thick layer on the ground is made up of thousands of snowflakes falling from the supersaturated clouds, meaning clounds too full of water and ice crystals, so that it pours them, and they freeze, solidify, harden into a snowflake. Notice the structure of the snowflake. A wonder not created by man. It is perfect and complicated, like a spider’s web. Large star-shaped with several stars on sides. Like a patch of lace.

The figure in the middle, the right row, shows us several drops of water, be it rain or dew. Dew is found in the morning on leaves, flower petals or grass, and the rain comes from clouds supersaturated in water vapor. The drops are round but when they fall, they are attracted by the gravity of the Earth, down and that is why the heavier slope falls down and is bigger and above it remains only a small peak. When it touches a surface, it makes a short sound the drop is scattered.

The figure below, the right row, shows us the Sun, the star of our galaxy, the Milky Way, the largest, around which planets gravitate, that is, they float and rotate on an oval axis around the star. The Sun, the center of the Solar System, is round, very bright, very hot and always  erupting on the surface like thousands and thousands of volcanoes. These eruptions are called solar flares from which a lot of energy is released. These solar storms can disrupt electricity on Earth and all that is based on electricity: internet, telecommunications, air transport, meaning airplanes. But also due to the energy of the Sun we can enjoy radio, television, internet, transport and telecommunications, because only on the background of these radiations coming from the Sun, the devices can work and information can circulate.
