Asked in Meteorology and Weather, Clouds
Are clouds made of soft fluffy cotton?
No, they are made of water droplets or ice crystals depending on the type. While clouds look very dense, most are no more opaque than ground fogs, with visibilities of a hundred meters or more. However, this is a small distance considering the speed at which aircraft travel through them. The densest clouds can reduce visibility to a few meters.

What are the factors that contribute to the famous fog of London?
There haven't been any severe fogs in London for about 50 years. The fogs used to be caused by a combination of smoke from factories and also from residential premises because at that time, many people had coal burning fires in their houses. These severe fogs were known as 'smog' from - smoke and fog.
