sky camera

This image shows the current sky over Walla Walla. Pictures are taken every 10 seconds and uploaded for future analysis of light pollution and weather patterns. The camera itself was built in the fall of 2010 by Zach Schierl (Astro-Geo, 2012) and Sam Schonfeld (Astro-Physics, 2012) under the supervision of Professor Nathaniel Paust. Dimples in the picture are raindrops, bright even areas might be snow on the camera, and when the weather is right you see glorious stars.
