A green sky flecked with swirling patterns of white lines. That’s what you get from sixty 30-second exposures taken through a ceiling dome at the South Pole station and made into a composite image. The IceCube winterovers have been capturing some amazing photos at the South Pole. But sometimes there is some extra work involved. You can see their efforts at special camera rigging in the ceiling for getting an all-sky timelapse video. But no special requirements were needed for this week’s outside images, below, not even lighting—the moon was out in full force.
