With cameras and video increasingly offering low-light capabilities, why stop with daytime weather cams? You don't have to...and someone is exploring this fascinating new dimension: Greg Johnson of Washington's SkunkBay Weather.
Greg Johnson is our local poet-laureate/visual artist of weather cam videos and offers a website in which you can view triple-cam views of the sky from his home on the Kitsap Peninsula. Some of his weather videos, coordinated with new age music, are moving on an emotional level. Recently, he started producing night cam videos and the results are amazing. Let me show you a few.
Here is one in which you can see stars (the big dipper!), clouds, aircraft, and a few meteors (click link):

One with clouds, aurora, and meteors!
All Night - Aurora and Meteors - 12/6 - 12/7 from SkunkBayWeather on Vimeo.
Or a moonlit night in October:

I think you will agree that such nighttime sky videos have a lot of promise and I look forward to the results of Greg's exploration of their potential. With music, of course.
