Gaze at the New York sky

Check out the sky over New York City from wherever you are in the world.

The site has one purpose: It shows you the average color of the NYC sky, updating every five minutes.

Bodge wrote a program that hooks up to a webcam, which takes a photo out his office window every five minutes, uploading it to a server. "The server then reads the sky portion of the photo, and it goes pixel by pixel," Bodge told the Village Voice. "What it does is it takes all those values, the RGB values, and it averages them. So what you are seeing is not the dominant color in the sky, it’s actually just the average color."
