IceCube winterover Hrvoje, who took the photo above, was excited to see the sun coming up again at the South Pole, except…that’s the moon and not the sun! (Of course, he knew that all along.) But what an illusion, this image of the moon—it could fool anyone. And the moon has played such games before. Hrvoje also captured a very different view of that same moon after it rose a bit more but was still low in the sky, with the IceCube Lab illuminated in red light, in the image below. IceCube winterover Marc was also taking photos outside last week. Below, a laser beam on top of the South Pole station draws the eye up into the center of concentric circles marking star trails in the sky from a three-hour exposure. At the ceremonial Pole, Marc caught his reflection in the mirrored sphere of the pole marker.
