Cloud-watching is one of the best pastimes for a lazy spring or summer time weekend. Just stretch out on the grass and let your imagination wander as you spot faces and images in the fluffy clouds lazily floating through the beautiful sky.

Our tendency to see faces or images in random objects, such as cloud formations, is called pareidolia. Renowned astrophysicist Carl Sagan theorized that this hard-wired tendency evolved as a way to quickly identify faces at a split-second (even in poor visibility), allowing us to identify them and judge their emotional state in the blink of an eye. And that's why we see things in bushes, white clouds, and even appliances or random objects!

If you go to watch the beautiful clouds, be sure to take some pictures and add them to this post dedicated to this natural phenomenon! Don't forget to tell us what you thought they looked like!

Doesn't it mean that a huge storm is coming and that it's time to go home? (it's a real question, no need to be rude if you answer).
