Station life was quiet this week, but the auroras continued, allowing IceCube’s winterovers to capture a few more images as the beginning of the aurora season unfolds. They also took some photos of themselves in their full cold weather gear, still frosty after coming indoors from doing work outside. Mack’s Ecuadorian devil’s mask doesn’t appear as icy as Christian’s balaclava, but it does have an extra devilish appearance under the red lights.
