11dec17-- ' time-lapse ' , what a great side perk to the 'live cams' , Eiffel Tower's 'live cam' is great to daily follow both arcs of the moon and sun as the whirld turns, ect. It's just dandy having the tower's 'live cam' broadcasting again. Thanks to our host. Travel for Teens
Lovely to see this one back, thank you.
ingo, I had the moon's orbital period.
Hello All - Yes, the camera is back online after days of Internet loss. And Sam, the period of the Moon that keeps pace with the Moon's phases is known as its synodic period, 29.530589 days.Dr. Frank, Ph.D., Astrophysics
Bonsoir Tour! Merci de donner en retour! Sont les lumières.12/10/2017 17:28
A funny thing just happened, My last post I pointed out the 'time-lapse' function, so I then watched the time-lapse,, I watched the moon dive bomb towards the tower's base then through half of the base. HAHA :-) neat viewing imo , I've been watching the moon other places too , did some searching about the moon several days ago, so when I read Travel for Teens comment to us, he used a number which just because I searched a few days ago I knew was close but,, the actual number is 27.322 days for the moon to go around the whirled < eg> Keeping its face towards us all the while.

26nov17-- EnJoy EnJoy absolutely ,,I was remiss when I first informed ALL about that other 'live cam' , by not apologizing to our sponsor 'Travel for Teens' at that time in that comment. My guess is : Frank Maloney totally understands why I posted the comment. My first comment on that subject included a Skyline link and that comment did not show for over 15 minutes so I posted the second with the name of the other company, and again I was remiss for not apologizing for the OFF TOPIC subject. My hope is 'Travel for Teens' profits through all the traffic on Skyline. Maybe even swamped with requests from people wanting to send their teens to not only beautiful Paris but to the other places offered through his business. I see several places Travel for Teens already offers in Africa maybe Zambia will become another, eh? The proper place for asking about OFF TOPIC subjects is in the three social links which SkylineWebcams has placed in every 'live cam' . I just watched at the top of the hour, the illumination display at dusk of the tower. Nearly everyday and time has a changing view here, check out the 'photos' ( located just below the 'live cam' viewing window. Please don't forget the 'time-lapse' function/button located just above the view window. EnJoy EnJoy
Hey, come on....lets all enjoy!!
frank, i do appreciate your camera. at first i thought nothing was happening, i thought i was a photo, but then i saw the clouds moving, and the tower lit at night. beautiful. now i love it and check it regularly.
Frank, it's not pleasant but we live in a time when people do not think about a real person on the other end of internet comments. So ignore the only slightly unhappy ones and know how much most of us enjoy this opportunity. Having views like this (to either remind us of the happy time we had in Paris or the chance to see something we will never see in "real life) and the chance to talk to each other across continents is extremely valuable. It is appreciated!
25nov17-- Frank Maloney , I will post an email to you in a few days. I apologize for stepping on your channel here in SL with a link and message to and about the different cam mentioned. Please understand the cam was hugely popular and drew viewers to SL so as - collateral damage - your viewership probably gained too and we viewers/travelers gained as word of SkylineWebcams spreads and more 'live cams' join. I hope your investment here gains you. Thanks. Sam, who captures images
Very well said Frank.
Hello All, and special Hello to Derek05 and to Capture Sam and to Gert -This view of la Tour Eiffel is a cadeau to you from the amazing folks at Skyline Webcams, who host this video feed, and from Travel for Teens, whose support enables me to house this camera at a location only 285 meters from the tower.There are some posts here lamenting the fact that there is but one Skyline camera in France. I too wish that there were more cameras imagining and illuminating the incredible beauty and history of my other home.There are some posts here which claim that nothing happens. If I may: look at the changing sky and the sparkling lights on the tower, a dawn spectacle in orange yielding to an afternoon canopy in blue, the wanderings of the birds and the flow of the clouds, irregular star bursts on the camera's window from the frequent Parisian showers, the lights that Derek05 and Capture Sam celebrate, and as Gert mentions, the Moon's 29.5 day dance around us. Thanks Gustave.
Hi All, please watch this cam in the evening, and "on the Hour" the tower lights up, Its a fabulous display. The French decided to illuminate the tower for the turn of the Millenium, but it proved so popular, they have kept it gong for the last 17 years. Enjoy.
