We've collected a webcam snap at noon (or as close to noon as we can) on just about every day for a while now. It's fun to look back day-by-day to see what each day was like! Have a look for yourself! (It assumes JavaScript has been activated on your computer)

Note that the noon-snap webcam was offline from 10 February to 23 October 2019 (yup, a long time, but the camera was right smack dab in the middle of the construction area), so there's a dummy placeholder for those days, and the actual view and angle had to change with the restart since the place where the webcam was mounted is now gone!

Tracking first and last noon sightings by year:
