  • Clouds have to be a different color than the sky otherwise flag people would be required to guide airline pilots around them to prevent crashes.
  • Clouds are indeed water particles, and water does bend light passing thru it. The untold zillions of water particles scatter so much light that the color they reflect to your eye is white ( all colors ). When a cloud reaches a much higher density it blocks more of the light and becomes dark, or a black cloud.
  • They're made of water and dust particles. But the reason they appear white is because white light is a combination of all colors being reflected when you see color it's because that's the color of light that's being reflected and the rest is being absorbed that's why when something appears black all the light is being absorbed none is being reflected
