Default Another somewhat OT: Live webcam of Mount Everest

Probably not an Oly webcam, but:

Judging by the quality of the image, it's not a normal webcam.

PS: It's only live from 6am to 6pm, Nepal time. So most of us need to look at night, our time.

That's cool. I think the thing missing is the scale, you need something on the mountain to get an understanding of how huge things are. Nice lighting currently

Mark, it is indeed cool. It's the highest webcam in the world, installed for scientific research on climate change:

PS: I found that Japan Today news blog back in March when I was trying to get more info on the Fukushima reactor disaster. Since then I've found it to be really interesting. For example, if you read the comments on the news articles you see that at least those Japanese who are blog members universally think their government is totally inept.

The time stamp on the photo now is 17:25, that's 5:25PM to you guys.
Here it's 3:50 PM PST. or 4:35 AM Local time Nepal.
It should be back on line in approx 80 minutes or at 5:30PM PST. 6AM local.

I spent time in Nepal in 1979. Wonderful place. Glad I saw it before all the troubles they've had.

Good info Ted. I am also familiar with that JapanToday website. I visit it periodically and do searches on "Olympus" to get interesting info not yet available in the American press. They currently have several interesting articles on the dismissal of Michael Woolford.
