Video of the Day: An Entrancing History of the Sky


Ken Murphy wanted to map the rhythms of the earth’s atmosphere in a unique way, so he installed a camera of the roof on The Exploratorim in San Francisco where he captured an image of the sky every 10 seconds for a year. Watching the patterns of clouds, fog, wind, and rain is completely entrancing. The visual textures shift in subtle ways across a large grid, which Murphy has arranged in chronological order. He’s post-processing new images daily to continue observing how the visualization changes. Click through to see 365 days of dreamy skies.
