Introduction to Images

The images of the camera are stored in an image archive every 5 sec. but here we present only one image every minute for the last half hour, and one image every 10 minutes for the last 5 hours. Update of the latest image is in near realtime, the 30 minutes and 5 hour loops are updated every 10 minutes.

The camera is pointed towards the northern sky above Cabauw. In the image you see the 213 m high meteorological tower on the left hand side. To suppress the necessary bandwidth and storage space only one image is stored every 5 sec. To support real-time display the video-server is configured to upload one image every minute to an intermediate system from where the images are dissiminated to the Internet.
