A History of the Sky: a Year-Long Time-Lapse Study of the Sky

An unusual but truly beautiful time-lapse mosaic of the sky created by Ken Murphy. Best when watched in HD and full screen.

A camera installed on the roof of the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco captured an image of the sky every 10 seconds. 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.
