sunset cammap Upcomung sunsets April 30, 2006, 15.30 h Universal Time (GMT). Click images for update.

Eternal Sunset endeavours to ensure you can enjoy the sunset live from any location, at any time. As the sunset moves westward, Eternal Sunset continuously tunes into different webcams, chasing the sunset around the globe. Fascinating: the 'clock of the sun' is in balance with the ever changing times of sunset anywhere! The project amasses real-time images from preexisting webcams all over the world to create a 24-hour stream of live sunsets. It underscores how global networks alter traditional conceptions of time. April 30, 2006, this service provided 187 west-facing webcams across 35 countries.
At the welcome page you find a perpetual show of webcams from places where the sun is going to set. Click 'more' and you get an overview of current sunsets and if you move the cursor over an image you find details about the site and the time you have to wait until sunset. You can click an interactive global map, where you find all webcams contributing to Eternal Sunset and at a realtime global map you can see where on earth the sun is shining and where it is dark. If you know a webcam that is catching the sunset, it is appreciated if you want to contribute your site/knowledge.
Eternal Sunset is a project of Dutch artist Adriaan Stellingwerff. At the website of Biep en Lu you find details about the design of Eternal Sunset. (Thanx to Amy Youngs).


Google has opened the possibility to search at video on the web. At the video welcome screen you can click (USA) tv items, popular video search items (with a daily updated Video Top 100), random video, or search for animations, comedy, news, commercials and others, and a special selection of Google itself. You find funny (?) commerials, cheating girlfriends, a barbecue at your neighbours, suspicious 911 documentaries and thousands of videos more. The secret: for the movies you have to pay. What you eventually need, like a Video Player, can be found at Video Help. And don't forget the Google Video of the Day.


OpenTopia provides at its website a seach directory, an encyclopedia, around 50,000 articles in over 75 categories, submitted to, mostly free to be re-published when author information is included and... far over 1,000 of mostly live hidden webcams.

Many cams show traffic, areas in or around factories and offices or are used to control the security. Often people can be seen. It can be questioned or the cam owners are aware to be visible worldwide.
You can select the webcams placed in various nations. Click at the image and you see the live feed that supplies information from the place. It is possible to make a geographic selection of countries all over the world and United States states.
Often OpenTopia doesn't know what kind of a cam is showed and the visitors are asked to provide that kind of information. You also can rate the views. It is possible to select random, the most often viewed, the highest rated and the newest cams from the selected area.
If you click the picture, you'll see what information is available about the location. Click at it and a window will open and you can see a live video feed, comments and ratings and other information.

OpenTopia is a website of Flemming Funch, also known like Ming the Mechanic, and he tells here why he started the webcam site.
Funch was born in Denmark, moved in 1985 with his wife to Los Angeles (USA) and went with his family in 2003 to Toulouse (France). Read his websites about his many interests, linking the people who change the world!


At the starting page of the webcam website you see a random webcam somehere in the world, and you can search webcams at the continents or special places like cities, streets, bridges, mountains, beaches, monuments, countries, panoramas and more. One of the special items is: Add 123search to your site. There you find the codes to insert a search machine and/or the '123 cam of the day' to your own page, like you see in this chapter. Each time you open this page you see another webcam.
