DEFINITION
Ceiling Projector

A type of cloud-height indicator that uses a searchlight to project vertically a narrow beam of light onto a cloud base.

The height of the cloud base is determined by using a clinometer, located at a known distance from the ceiling light, to measure the angle included by the illuminated spot on the cloud, the observer, and the ceiling light.
