Web cameras:
Many web cameras are in different time zones so you may get a dark image with just a few lights.
The U.S. Naval Observatory has a World Time Zone Map on the Web.
Also weather conditions may result in images that are mainly of fog, clouds or rain.
Proximity of cameras to volcanoes can range from very close to quite distant.
Remember to refresh the display when returning to pages visited recently.
Refresh rates may vary by seconds or days depending on the camera.
