Ken Murphy’s “A History of the Sky” is a year-long time-lapse video of the sky above San Francisco’s Exploratorium Museum. Murphy installed a camera on the museum’s roof and captured an image of the sky every 10 seconds for 365 straight days.

Rather than create a straight time-lapse video, Murphy opted to put together a tiled mosaic of 360 days. Each tile is a 24-hour time-lapse of a single day. The tiles are arranged chronologically and synchronized by time of day beginning just before sunrise.

If one is able, it’s best to watch Murphy’s video in full HD. Regardless, it’s still pretty cool and hypnotic to watch the ebb and flow of daylight, clouds and storms move across the sky in this manner.
