It was a green sky last week as the biggest aurora storm of the season swept over the South Pole.  No long camera exposure needed for this fantastic aurora scene.

Everything that has a beginning and an end has a middle, too—and that goes for winter.  Last week at the South Pole they celebrated midwinter, the marking of the winter solstice.

They got some great outdoor photos last week under bright moonlight—no headlamps needed to walk around outside.

Submitted ideas for the next pole marker are on display.  The winterovers will vote on their favorite design for the 2021 marker.

OK, so the weather’s cold (June average of -64° F),  but there was lots of “cool” stuff at the Pole last week for IceCube’s winterovers.

It’s cold at the South Pole, no matter how you slice and dice it.  And as winter settles in, temperatures go even lower.

Last week was a relatively quiet week at the Pole.  Well, quiet as far as the IceCube detector was concerned, but there were a variety of things going on as usual.

The recent photos from the Pole reflect a peacefulness outside, with the impending darkness of winter still held off by a bright moon

The skies are getting darker as the period of twilight comes to an end.  As dark as it is, IceCube’s winterovers find it surprising how colorful the sky can become.
