Title: Turrialba cam link on this page: Cámaras en los Volcanes

Feb 17, 2017 UPDATE: The previously-posted link does not work now. This link does work:
http://www.ovsicori.una.ac.cr/index.php/vulcanologia/camaras-volcanes/camara-v-turrialba
...

There doesn't appear to be anything wrong at all with these volcano cams, when accessed from this page.  ???  ;D I will be taking a look later on too.
There are three cams here, Turrialba, facing west. Irazu also facing west which includes a view of Turrialba and that same peak which we used to use as a marker for looking for PX or other related objects. Angle is not nearly as good as it used to be, but may be useful.
Last volcano cam is not useful since it is pointed down into the Poas volcano. (Cámara Volcán Póas) 
Image at bottom of this post is a screen capture of the Irazu volcano cam. Cámara ubicada en la cima del Irazú con vista hacia el Este, se observa el cráter del Irazú y también se puede observar el Volcán Turrialba. In other words, the Irazu cam is pointed west and includes observation of the Turrialba volcano. - Yowbarb

Good Grief, it looks like I spoke too soon. Not sure if this is due to more of an eruption, lightning or human intervention but right after a completely clear view then started seeing a screen forming. Then the black and white stripes, colored stripes.
At the moment there is a screen effect over the right half of the cam view. Again I thought I caught a glimpse of something for a sec on the right third of the page.
Oh well...

Periodicallly it looks like the cam is unobstructed, not interfered with, then bam a screen moves over  part of the cam view. Notably, the right side. SEE (1401.) By 1407 it is back again for something which looks unobstructed.
Well I didn't intend to post so many photos. This is just to show how the cam goes back and forth. I had thought I had found a better site for cam view.
Also (I) think I see objects in and out of view...

Actually the view from this cam is not "OK." I happened to see a few clear views in the beginning when I started this Topic. Here's a shot from 23:39 PM CT.
Marshall says forget about this cam...I can't help but take a look at it...

Yowbarb Note: Off in the middle of the night I felt like looking at the Turrialba cam...wow it was just one mass of light smoky color and a puff ball of white...then found out a big eruption yesterday. Was trying to posti some images and a video but my computer got all stuck...
Will try again. It's 12:40 PM EDT now. So I am able to get back online and retrieve the images now...
1)   is 02:10 AM Central time on the Turrialba volcano cam
2)   Hard to see but this screen shot of a video displays the date of the article on the eruption.
3)   the eruption screen shot from RT video.
4)   A screen shot of Irazu volcano cam showing Turrialba off in the distance. At the present time the Irazu cam link doesn’t open up so the image is stuck from a few hours ago. 10:41 AM CT.

An American Airlines flight had to return to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Thursday after a volcano began erupting in Costa Rica. (Published Thursday, Mar 12, 2015)

Updated 5 hours ago

An American Airlines flight had to turn back and return to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Thursday after a volcano began erupting near its destination of Costa Rica.

The noxious cloud from the eruption of volcano Turrialba is making it impossible for planes to land or take off in the capital city of San Jose.

Much of the time last night, March 14, 2015, the Turiabla webcam's screen would display the gibberish of "interference", i.e., blocks, rows and lines of colors, but occasionally an intact view would be seen, one of which is here.

Hi Marzstar... :)
I'm sure ilinda will answer your post also... If you look closely (may have to blow up the image by increasing the zoom on your computer) you will see the time stamp on the volcano cam. Upper left.
In this case it says about 1812. 1812 Hours CT, or also known as, 6:12 PM CT.
Most often we see something interesting in the evening.
In this case I don't know if that is Venus. Could be, maybe not.
Sometimes way late at night I see a bunch of bright objects... Makes me wonder if I am seeing the Planet X System.
Marshall told us to not bother with Turrialba, because of the tampering which we think goes on with the cam. It is the only one I know at that angle that far south on the planet, that high an elevation! Also facing west with the setting sun.
Sometimes I do get a glimpse of something but they have put a screen over it most of the time and then there are the blankouts and the colored stripes, etc. This is not to say, "Don't observe." If some of us occasionally observe, we may catch something on there. There is also the Irazu Cam for which I started a Topic. Irazu points toward Turrialba and seems to be a better cam. It is not at the same good angle but it does point west.
Keep looking up... We do need another good untampered cam...

These three pics were taken in the evening, and I checked my "get info" on the file saved to my computer, and the times listed do match those at the bottom of each pic, as well as the tiny time/date stamp on the actual photo.

My listings show 7:12 PM, 7:13 P.M., and 7:17 P.M. for these.  Those times are Central Daylight Time.

I'm really glad you are also interested in monitoring this webcam, as Barb sort of got me hooked and I try to check it out in evenings.  We certainly have noticed that sometimes there appears to be a screen or some sort of fabric that is in front of the lens so as to mute or "muddify" what we're seeing, but we trudge on.

Here's a little trick I do.  Often in the evenings just when we might see something of interest, those color bars and other colorful interference covers much of the screen.  So, instead of waiting for it to clear in the next image (10 sec later), I just leave my cursor on the URL and when the new pic full of interference appears, I click on the cursor to get a refresh.  Sometimes it's full of gibberish, but occasionally it's a new clear pic.  Also noticed if I refresh too many times, too quickly, I get a totally blank screen.  It's a game now!

Good luck and we're anxious to have another monitor.

I agree it is a game... and I am clicking away... sometimes I catch a few bright objects...
Just when I could see them more clearly the screen-ish crapola seems heavier and then theres the stripes... I didn't check with starry night or whatever. These could be moon jupiter, Venus... don't know yet was just trying to get a glimpse...Marshall and the Researcher can't really analize them...picture quality so poor, due to what we believe is tampering. Not to mention the volcano is always smoking lately.
Anyway here is one from 2330 (March 21st) they are only two hours behind. CT. No CDT.  http://www.timeanddate.com/time/change/costa-rica/san-jose

San Jose, Costa Rica. 9°56′N 84°5′W

This map not exactly ... Pretty close and yes you can see Jupiter etc. I'd be the first to say maybe identifiable planets are all we are seeing...This will take more work. We need a better cam...

It is obvious someone is tampering with this webcam, in the sense of obstructing the view.

 The attached five shots make this clear.  The first four are from yesterday, three from 8:24, 8:26 and 8:27A.M., and the fourth at one minute before midnight.

Then got one this morning, and guess what?  That fake mass of clouds is gone,  since they only need to fool the public when the sun is on the horizon.

If you look closely at the first four shots, the background clouds do change as they always do in nature.  But the fake smoke or clouds they placed in front of the screen NEVER CHANGES!  It is hilarious when you sit back and analyze what they were doing yesterday.  A good guess is that some sort of fabric that is very loose-weave was used, but again, it never changes.  Has anyone ever seen smoke or clouds that remain in place for HOURS?

Marshall is probably right in saying not to waste much time on this site.

So this cam view screenshot is from about fifteen minutes ago. 2130 CT - or 9:30 at night. Big bright blob in the sky...
Will see if it is still there soon...and the position of the rising moon, etc.

Big blob of light...still there, at 22:02 that' 10:02. So, I checked it, moving toward the horizon; that was the moon.
Moon does set in the W over San Jose, Costa Rica at 10:08 PM
OK folks that was a lovely setting moon. In the last shot, 2209 the moon has just set. Notice all the objects there to view and some right on the horizon. Someone needs to get to an elevation like that with a great telescope and camera.

Interesting how there is still light on the horizon.  Wonder what that represents?  The sun has been down several hours, and that horizon light seems unconnected to light from the moon.

Like Yowbarb, I sometimes check the Turialba webcam, in spite of their periodic attempt to hinder viewing by the public, an example of which is posted above, where "white clouds" (superimposed on pictures) never move, never float, and always remain totally stationary (some clouds!!), while background clouds change naturally. 

These were captured on March 27, 2015 at 18:26:20 and 19:34:40.  Venus is setting.

Post by: ilinda on April 03, 2015, 08:11:00 AM
While observing the Turialba webcam screen change every 10 seconds last evening, I noticed at one point that suddenly the sun was much brighter--so bright it was impossible to see anything at all in the vicinity of the sun, except light, with no borders.

 Makes one wonder if there is some automatic control that, at a certain time around dusk, removes or shuts down a brightness filter that is ordinarily functional during daylight hours.  Who knows?

Also, there is something within the red lens flare that is of interest.  I saw it in numerous shots, only one of which I captured.  Look closely at the red "sun" lens flare, in the first shot.  Notice at around the "one o'clock position" on that red sun is a small white dot.  I noticed that as the sun continued to set, the red-sun-lens-flare also continued to move, as did that little white dot on the lens flare.  I have to wonder what reflection  or blockage of sunlight was causing that absence of red in the lens flare, i.e., an area devoid of color?

Here are three captures:

I looked yesterday and swear they had done something strange.  There was lots of smoke, no detail anywhere except closeup of foreground moutain terrain.   Two things looked odd:
1) There seemed to be a white outline around the main mountain mass, and that white outline appeared abnormal, almost as if a "cut&paste" routine had been done by a low tech computer, and the mass of foreground mountain was imported in and allowed to be photoshopped to blend in with background smoke and backdrop mountain.

2)  Smoke in one part changed regularly, while smoke in another part stayed the same, refresh after refresh.
