Ever wonder how clouds are formed? Try this science experiment with NBC10 First Alert Meteorologist Bill Henley to make your own at home. It’s easy!
If you try it, please take a video and upload it here – – we may use it on NBC10!
1 Glass Jar (like a mason jar or larger)
1 lid (Can be the mason jar lid or a pie tin)
1. Pour your hot (the hotter the better) water into your jar. Fill about 1/4 of the jar.
2. Add as many ice cubes as you can to the underside of your mason jar lid, or pie tin, if you’re using a larger jar.
3. Set the lid/tin on top of the jar opening for a minute or so. Allow the ice to settle and even melt a bit. The goal is to get the entire lid/tin cold.
4. Quickly: Remove the lid/tin from the jar opening and spray hairspray into the jar. Immediately put the lid/tin back on the jar opening.
5. Let the lid/tin sit over the jar opening for another minute or so. You should see the cloud beginning to form!
6. Lift the lid/tin and let the cloud escape from the jar. Wave your hand through your cloud to feel the moisture!
