Another amazing week at the Pole—not only was the detector performing well but the twilight photographs continued to be stunning. IceCube winterover Martin captured another great time-lapse shot of a NOAA weather balloon launch along with some striking images of the station and the IceCube Lab, below. Temperatures were up and down last week, with a high reaching a balmy –45 ºF, and the lingering light from the setting sun continued to wane. The winterovers are getting excited for the dark skies to come. In the meantime, plenty of work and extracurricular activities, like greenhouse maintenance and the classes that are underway, keep folks busy.
