WEBCAMS

As one the more interesting aspects of the web, webcam imagery can assist mountain drivers to evaluate weather and driving conditions. The 1st cam location is in our nearest town, Hemet. The 2nd is located a 1/2 mile up from the center of town on North Circle Drive. The 3rd is located in Palm Springs.

THE IDYLLWILD SCRAPBOOK

360 degree panorama photography is simply the best way to artificially visualize a subject, whether its a landscape, a family photo, or a product shot. The Scrapbook has about 30 panorama photos.

idyllwild photo

Panoramas

One of the great things to do in Idyllwild is to photograph. Its seems everything is worthy of a snapshot. Over the years, we have organized about 400 favorite photographs and Quicktime VRs (panoramas) and placed them into a new, searchable online format.

The Green Cafe proudly presents ...
The Idyllwild Scrapbook


SATELLITE IMAGERY

Satellite imagery is also an indispensable tool for determining weather conditions. Below is a recent satellite image of the Western United States and the Pacific Ocean. The image is updated roughly every thirty minutes or so and in case you are curious, the GREEN CIRCLE is centered on Idyllwild, California. Animations for last 4 hours, last 12 hours and last 24 hours are also available.

Captured: Sat 7:20 PM Dec 3, 2016


*** To view animation, click on 4 HR, 12 HR or 24 HR tab and move mouse pointer anywhere near the green circle on satellite image and wait a few seconds for the animated weather to start.

PLANET RISE / SET TIMES
IN IDYLLWILD
Idyllwild is a wonderful place to 'gaze' at the stars, planets, and moon. Below are the rise & set times (24 hour format) of all the planets in our solar system (including Pluto). The celestial bodies are arranged in chronological rise time order and can be experienced in the Idyllwild area by looking in the lower southeast sky (towards Garner Valley).

If the name of the planet is in purple, then it is currently visible under suitable conditions. To view the setting planet, look in the lower southwest sky, towards Hemet.
