South Pole Live Camera


This photo is of the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station taken every 15 minutes (if a relay satellite is available for transmission) from the roof of the Atmospheric Research Observatory which houses NOAA/ESRL's Clean Air Facility. In order to preserve the life of the camera, it is tilted down onto the snow when the sun is in the field of view, which occurs for several weeks around sunset (March) and sunrise (September) when the sun marches in a circle above the horizon. From mid-April until mid-August the moon and the aurora australis provide the only natural lighting.
Geography: Antarctic. Time zone: GMT
Broadcast quality: photo, 720p. Status: webcam is online (checked).

This is pretty hopeless. To get some kind of understanding you need to have a historical log of all the photos over the last 24 hours compiled into a slide show so an interested person could click through them very fast to see what a day would look like in condensed time. Then if this historical data was combined over 365 days and viewed very fast so it could become like a movie so I could see the daily changes over a year. Just showing a still shot every 10 or 15 minutes is useless. Not worth a cracker. If you are not collecting these photos to build something like what I've suggested what is the point of it. Just a big waste if time and money. In fact I was really expecting to have seen what I have suggested because it's just common sense that that's what would have been done. Maybe you do keep these photos and it never occurred to you that they could be put to better use. If they are available and I just haven't seen how to find them on this site yet please let me know. Sorry if I sound a bit frustrated and annoyed but I am to be honest. Please direct me to where they are I would be very appreciative if you could assist.
