Is the sun above the clouds or below the clouds?

The sun is above the clouds, because when the clouds pass through it covers the sun. So yes the clouds are below the sun.


Where does the sun pass overhead?

The furthest south the Sun will ever be overhead is the imaginary line known as the Tropic of Capricorn - lying at 23° 26' 22" south of the Equator. It is overhead there on the December solstice - usually December 22 26′ 22″north of the The furthest north it will ever be overhead is the similar line, the Tropic of Cancer, lying at 23° 26' 22" north of the Equator. It is overhead there at the June Solstice - usually June 21. In between these dates it appears overhead at points between these two lines - moving towards the Equator - where it is overhead at the equinoxes - March 20th and Spetember 22.


How do the clouds block the sun?

It's simple really. Clouds block the sun just like anything else does: by not allowing the sun's light to pass through. Clouds actually reflect much of the sun's rays back out into space. However, this does not mean that all rays are reflected. This is why we can still see during the day on a cloudy day. Like a piece of white paper or thin curtain, there are still small holes or pores that light waves can travel through. Being that clouds are mainly water particles, light can still pass through, but most of it is refracted or reflected.


Which planet has thick clouds?

Venus has a very thick carbon dioxide filled atmosphere which traps heat and very thick clouds, so the answer is Venus, oh and speaking of Venus did you know on June5,2012 Venus will pass over the sun in North America, this is called the transit of Venus.


Why do clouds become black before raining?

There are two things going on to make some rain clouds to appear very dark. The first is that some clouds, especially thunderstorm clouds such as nimbocumulus clouds can tower to great heights with tops 15 to 20 km (50-60 thousand feet) above the earth. Plus these clouds, which tend to produce very heavy rains and hail are very dense, being full of water vapor and raindrops at lower altitudes and ice crystals at high altitude. As a result, it is more difficult for sunlight to pass through these clouds than it is for light to pass through neighboring clouds which aren't as high and dense. More of the light is reflected back into space or sideways because there's more obstacles. Plus, there's more absorption of the light on its way through the cloud, because the light will bounce around very much and take a very long total path before finally coming out the bottom of the cloud.

Why do some clouds pass over without producing any rain?

In order for a cloud to rain it needs enough water molecules to build up. When the water molecules condense enough together they make the clouds heavy and therfore drop water. So clouds that don't rain at the time probably will eventually.
