This camera is mounted about 60 feet off the ground, on the northwest side of our Doppler radar tower here at the NWS Springfield Office (see image below). We are located adjacent to the Springfield-Branson National Airport. There are times we may point the camera in a different direction to view interesting weather approaching. Alternative views will be towards the south, the west, and to the north. We have a bird's eye view of the area around the airport and portions of northwest Springfield. Any views in the southeastern horizon are blocked by the tower itself, limiting their usefulness. The looped images cover about 15 minutes of time. There may also be times that the looping images will jump around due to our scanning of the horizon while the images are being taken for the web display. At night, the images may be hard to see anything.
