Another week, another sun dog.  This nice photo taken of sun dogs at the Pole also shows off a blue sky, some low-lying clouds, and the South Pole Telescope far off to the left.  While it’s still light outside, IceCube winterover Martin took an opportunity to pose at the marker for the geographic South Pole.  Inside, the station crew set up a little sitting area in the galley.  Notice the uncovered windows—that will change by sunset, soon to come and an anxiously awaited milestone for the winterover crew.
