The WebCam does not generally operate at night.
It is intended to operate the WebCam every day. However, research needs may dictate otherwise, and there will be periods of unplanned downtime. NCAR makes no commitment to operation for any given time period.
The following are known extended periods for which images should be available. Within these periods, there may be short times when some component of the system was down, and images were missed. Once operations become stable, a list of "known down times" will likely be more useful.
