There are
“South Pole”

Last week was somewhat busy for the IceCube detector. Otherwise, the sun continues its slow rise, leaving things outside appearing blue and frosty.

What did we just say about the dawn sky at the South Pole?  That it can present quite a colorful display, as evidenced by this week’s outdoor photos.

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.

You never know which aurora images from the Pole will be the last of the season.  But if it’s this week’s images, then this year’s aurora season is clearly going out with a bang.

Look who’s at the South Pole.  Okay, we can’t see their faces in this image, but we trust that those are IceCube’s winterovers.

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.

Another quiet week at the Pole. But there is a bit more “camera” commotion now as the darkest part of the (long) polar night is coming to an end.

It was a quiet week at the Pole. And just as well…some folks appreciated some time to recover from the Polympics. But the sky was not quiet.

Here we see IceCube winterover John removing the cover from the IceAct field telescope, while the sky is still grabbing its deserved attention.
