A History of the Sky

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

This video of “A History of the Sky” was taking from the roof of the Exploratorium in San Francisco, and is comprised of 126 days of time elapse photography spaced 10 seconds apart. ┬áIt’s not only cool how cloudy and sunny days appear like a calendar of weather, but also how the sunrises and sunsets fade across the screen as the days get shorter, transitioning from summer to winter of 2009. It’s probably a good thing the video doesn’t yet include January or February because the camera would be covered in water drops every day. The plan is to eventually have a constantly-updated display showing the most recent 365 days.
