    I know it was used to create an overall beautiful endin scene, but was it really accurate to have bunch of "sunset clouds" on a planet that gets pretty much no rain? It's prolly just a minor loophole, but I think it is an interesting note.

    Look at the way George made it rain on Coruscant when Palpy/Sid brought Ani/Vader back from Mustafar. I think George really uses these weather motifs as a symbolic reference to tone, good v. evil.

    As far as it being cloudy on Tatooine, I just take it as the fact that the storm of the Empire will be brewing and causing trouble for 20 years but Luke will evenutally see a clear sky and help to bring down the Empire.

    There's been clouds on Tatooine plenty of times in the other movies ;)
    Clouds = moisture, not neccessarily rain.
    There's also a bunch of plants and shrubbery everywhere.
    Watch every movie (aside from ESB) again, and you'll see.

    The Lars do live on a moisture farm, Tatooine can have clouds. I don't see anyting wrong with it.

    Maybe one of the reasons that they were looking out in the distance was because of the rare occurrence of clouds. ;)

    Well there isn't too much to do on Tatooine, so it seems like they do a whole lot of looking up at the sky. Makes time go by quicker ;).

    no "those "sunset clouds" are high level cirrus clouds which do not necessarily require high humidity at ground level. I frequently see them in the winter after the passage of a cold front when ground level humidity is quite low. Here in our universe on Earth cirrus clouds are frequently seen in terrestial deserts but they produce no rain.

    Calamarian, that response is far too sensible for someone who registered in May 2005. I'm more used to 05/05'ers harping on about Darth Maul in the TV series and 3PO being gay [face_plain]

    So can you have a word with the Admins and see of they can 'clock' your date or something? :p
