    Timelapse Sky over Hawley,tx from 1-25 thru 2-20

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Kevinp told me he likes time-lapses because they show us things we'd otherwise probably not see. "I love how taking still images of events that are too too slow to see naturally shows motions and patterns of movement that we would otherwise be oblivious to."
    - lila, CNN iReport producer

    I have a netcam that displays an image of the sky over my home here in Hawley, Texas on my personal weather station website. The camera takes an image of the sky every 60 seconds and uploads it to my weather site so visitors can see how the sky looks here in Hawley.

    As well as the image I also have some programs I've written on the web server that combines all tha daily images from a particular day into a video timelapse of that day and stores them online. When I saw the Timelapse Ireport assignment I thought it'd be fun to take a months worth of timelapses and combine them in to a "month of Texas Skes" timelapse


    Every image has a timestamp so you can watch the time run as the video plays. I also edited out the boring nighttime images because the camera doesnt do low light very good!

     

    If you'd like to see how the sky over Hawley looks right now.

    Please visit the skycam at the link below.
