Follow the in-application instructions to make a “New Cloud Observation”.  The app will walk you through how to do this successfully, with a very easy interactive picture function that helps you capture a North, South, East, West, Up and Down view.

Coordinate your observation with the time a satellite passes over your site to make the data even more helpful to NASA.

Have fun.  Participate often!
