If you are working with other observers, try to use some of the following hints.

Make sure to equally divide all work equally. If you are observing every day, give one day to the first person and the next day to the next person on your list.

Each team member should record and print out the pictures the same way. This way your archives make sense and people know how to find things.

Keep a team book with all the images arraigned in a way that everyone can find what they want. You could put all the sequential images together in one file, all the cloud images together in another, all the lightning and so on. You need to have the sequential ones together to see the progress of a weather feature from day to day. If you do the comparison of space weather to earth surface weather, have one person monitor and record the space weather and another the earth surface weather. You must record the dates of each observation so you can verify the ( later ) effect of an ( earlier ) cause. You will need to collect data for some time.

Have regular discussions with your team members to discuss what you have found a lot of learning happens in these discussions. You may wish to predict when some event is going to occur and then watch to see if you are right. A weekly conference in which each team member describes each of their discoveries as completely as possible is a good idea. Once you get used to making regular reports to your team mates, you could invite other students in, just to listen.

Decide as a team which way you wish to show what you have learned, perhaps in a display case or on a poster board in your classroom. Perhaps you could set up a display for the whole school in a central place like near the front door. Show your images during class so that everyone gets to enjoy them.
