      The pattern that appears from the side is due to the relative distances each ball has to travel. The ones at the far end traveling a shorter distance than the ones closer. Thus the cycle of the far end ones is quicker than the cycle of the closer ones. We could quite easily, by describing the motion of each pendulum, describe in a precise mathematical language which patterns will appear from the side and the rate at which they change. :D Physics is awesome!
