Clowdy

From "John Aubrey and the roots of the Royal Society", a review by Ruth Scurr in the September 1 issue of the TLS (the illustration of a chambered nautilus drew me in):

His original contributions include a drawing of the “Clowdy Starr” he observed in 1668 between Cancer and Hydra, papers on springs and winds, and experiments on Wiltshire water and clay.

A pleasing cl word (clew is another).
