Photographs of this morning's valley fog...

A short but dramatic hail storm just hit us up here on the hill...

...and earlier, sheets of rain washed across the valley :

Not every day can be a sunny day in California! As we saw yesterday....

If you like our ever changing views across the valley, you might like this collection of
photos from the
webcam at Lick Observatory. Selected and hosted on Flickr by Miguel
Vieira and titled "
A month on Mount Hamilton, November 2006".

What a fabulous weather-week for January! Temperatures at or around 70F on every day
and through this weekend. So much sun and I nearly forgot to download the camera.
What did I find? This shot of that extremely bright moon taken on Wednesday around
7:15am. The brightness was toned down a little to bring out more of the surface detail...

If you had not noticed, there is a completely new photo gallery which has replaced the old slide show. This new gallery is completely hosted by Morgan Hill Weather and
includes a more comprehensive and current set of our photographs including a webcam
snapshot collection.

To highlight the gallery, the banner image at the top of each page now includes an
automatically generated random selection of our photos. Enjoy!

The Theater page now has an interactive calendar that enables you to browse our
complete archive of webcam images going back to November 2007. Just click on a date to
view thumbnail images from throughout that day. Click on a thumbnail to view a one hour
time-lapse sequence starting from that point. Click on the arrows on the top row of the
calendar to move backwards and forwards in time, one month at a time.

Not every day has an archive, especially in the earlier months and some months are
missing. Dates with archives appear in green.

The original intent was to delete all images for days that didn't have a sequence of
obvious interest but that strategy is no longer employed. Now anyone can browse the
archive and find sequences that might interest them. Enjoy!

Today I have introduced player controls to both the Webcam and Theater pages for use
while viewing time-lapse sequences. The controls become visible once the sequence has
been selected e.g. 1hr Time-lapse on the Webcam page.

For example:

For this level of control, all of the images have to be downloaded first. A progress bar will
tell you how that's going. You can start the player before the download completes and
even remove the progress bar by just clicking on it. However, the player might stall if you
haven't gotten an image by the time the player reaches it. Serious broadband download
speeds recommended!

I have briefly tested with IE 7.0, Firefox 3.0.5 and Safari 3.2.1 . In the process, found and
fixed a bug with the Theater page not working at all in Safari! Oops!!
