Which is a shame really, as it was showing some spectacular images from its position in the Beaufort Sea where there is a lot of ice floe action. I apologize for neglecting to add this webcam to the webcam section of the Arctic sea ice daily graphs page. Luckily Arcticio converted the webcam movie and put it on Youtube:
There is some good news though! Obuoy webcam #6 is safe and doing great:
