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.
Wind
The wind speed is 3mph, so the typography is a little bit distorted.
Time
It's 22:29 – 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 27th of September 2022 causes the contrast to shift and the gradient is rotated too. The gradient is also affected by sunrise at 07:02 and sunset at 18:48.
UV
The UV index is 0 so the colours are not very saturated.
Weather
The condition is Clouds so the composition is partly obscured by light coloured gradients. There's a 40% cloud layer to match the sky.
