Oak Ridge & Vicinity Web Cams

There could be more cams now. There once was a Neighborhood Windmill Web Cam page.

These Cams all belong to other sites. All credits go to the original sites for providing the images. The images here are linked to the original sites, and are brought together here for the purpose of a "panoramic view" of the area, with review and commentary. Therefore, this should be allowable "fair use." If you see it differently, let me know.

Technically, this page is an exception to the "no web bugs" rule. The original sites' logs will show requests for their images when they are viewed here; however, there is no coordinated tracking (as far as I know).

The images do not all automatically reload here, so hit Reload for this page or follow the links to the original sites to get the images to update.

Nothing like re-organizing every couple years...

Look Rock Cam
View to East from Look Rock
, at the western end of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The web site has weather and air quality (ozone). This location is pitch dark at night (and very grey in heavy fog). Why was this web cam, and associated site, down all the time years ago (12/14/01)?!
Other National Park webcams

Temperature cam (archive 2006). This apparently originatesd at the Claxton Building at the UTK campus in Knoxville, home of the Innovative Computing Laboratory and Netlib . It's was also linked to from Jack Dongarra's page there, so maybe it's his.

Formerly the Hess Hall Webcam.
Old home page

The UTK bookstore has had a computer store with a webcam and a list of more cams on campus. The bookstore pages seem improved gone lately. They were filled with javascript and apparently numerous pre-loading images, which nearly broke my browsers. The webcam still doesn't work for me (now requires Java?), however. The computer/bookstore at UTK is located about here, in the university center

Windmills on horizon First was the closest thing to a TVA Windmill cam.

In previous years, when there were only 3 "smaller" windmills, I never saw the windmills in the cam images, although it was pointed in the right direction.

As seen in the photo excerpt from 2006-May-14, with the new improved cam, on a clear day you can could (barely) see the windmills on the distant ridge. In the live cam (below) you are were seeing the far (second) ridge on the horizon if, well, you see 2 ridges. Otherwise, on cloudier days you only see the closer local in-town ridge (or less). At night, well, there's only the lights at the mall.

Live cam image (archive 2007) was courtesy of NOAA Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Division. (archive 2007) Their building and camera are roughly located about here (OpenStreetMap), and the view is about to northwest over the Oak Ridge mall area. ( aerial view)

Note: No longer updating here.

There once was a Web Cam (archive 2001) at ORNL's site of the SNS (archive 2001), but now then the site says said, "We are sorry but we have removed all of our webcams." Now it seems to be completely gone.

The Anderson County Sheriff's Office Jail in Clinton, TN Aerial View) had a streaming jailcam, and an on-line tour. On 2006-11-27 the jailcam was discontinued, as explained in their announcement (retrieved 2006-11-29, or at archive).

This spot now blank

Quote of the moment
You are wonderful. I love and honor you.... [ellipsis in source] Lead your own life, attend to your charities, cultivate yourself, travel when you wish, bring up the children, run your house. I’ll give you all the freedom you wish and all the money I can but—leave me my business and politics.
