Periwinkle Cruft
This cruft algorithm updated at 51 minutes past every hour. A sample of the sky over Southern Ohio, was captured by downloading an image from a webcam once every hour. A small section of the sky was selected from the image and pasted into a grid containing 23 previous samples. The tiles were arranged from left to right, and top to bottom with the most recent sample in the upper left hand corner, while the oldest sample is in the lower right hand corner. A complete 24 hour period is presented displaying simultaneous snapshots.
