Do you love clouds? Which is your favourite? There are four kinds to choose from; there's cumulus, stratocumulus, stratus, and cirrus. But who came up with all these names? Well the answer is Luke Howard, a British chemist manufacturer and amateur meteorologist. His work inspired Percy Shelly to write the poem, 'Cloud', and John Constable's sky study paintings.
Howard died in 1864, meaning this year is the hundred and fiftieth anniversary since his death.
