Sky-cam timelapse

Still images of the full sky are obtained with a small camera mounted under a dome in the Atmospheric Laboratory, and provide a view with similar sensitivity to the naked eye for the study of Antarctic clouds. There are some artefacts in the images due to defective pixels (bright stationary star-like features at night), and refraction and scattering of light by the dome.

The date/time on the image and movies shows local Davis time. If you have any questions about the webcams, please see our webcam FAQ.
