While a blue sky may seem boring to some, especially after the many displays of auroras throughout the winter, the long twilight actually provides plenty of dawn colors to enjoy while outdoors.
The sky was the center of attention at the Pole last week—and for a number of reasons. Sure, there were auroras, stunning as always. But there was also a moon bright enough to be confused with a sunset.
Last week was the first time this year that temperatures dipped to -100 °F, what one winterover deemed “properly cold.” The moon was out, though, so they didn’t let the extreme cold stop them from enjoying the clear skies for outdoor photography.
