Amazingly Cool Video Shows a Year's Worth of San Francisco Skies
We were delighted when we came across this video created by Ken Murphy, a San Francisco artist, who took nonstop snapshots of the city's sometimes heavenly and sometimes foggy sky from atop the Exploratorium museum.

The end result was a time-lapse video with 360 movie panels that display the nuances of San Francisco's celestial sphere.

As explained on the NASA site, Murphy's camera recorded an image every 10 seconds from before sunrise to after sunset and from mid-2009 to mid-2010 (see time stamp showing the local time of day on the lower right).
Here's how Murphy explained his masterpiece:
This is a year-long time-lapse study of the sky. From these images, I created a mosaic of time-lapse movies, each showing a single day. The days are arranged in chronological order. My intent was to reveal the patterns of light and weather over the course of a year.
Hopefully this inspired you to stop looking at your phone, and check out the sky today.
