Full planet weather timelapse

This is the most recent weather time-lapse video I made:

Now with music! =P
Making this was really simple thanks to the image filenames following a predictable pattern. At first I thought I would need to do something really complicated like image recognition, or something with image layers to automate this, but luckily it was not necessary.

Here is the complete script:
