About this website
The current design of this website is determined by an algorithm. It uses live weather and astronomy data from our location in Oxford, UK to create a unique & unrepeatable composition.
The wind speed is 8mph, so the typography is a little bit distorted.
It's 22:39 – this determines the primary colour and the position of the gradient, and because it's nighttime the colour is dark rather than light. Today's date, the 8th of June 2023 causes the contrast to shift and the gradient is rotated too. The gradient is also affected by sunrise at 04:52 and sunset at 21:15.
The UV index is 0 so the colours are not very saturated.
The condition is Clear so the composition is bright and saturated. There is no cloud layer visible.
This website was designed by Jake Dow-Smith Studio.
