A relatively quiet week at the Pole. Cold, too, although no record breakers. That happened a few weeks ago when there was an early record of -100 °F, which warranted a celebration of the 300 Club (those crazy brave enough to subject their bodies to a 200 °F sauna followed by a trip outside to the -100 °F temperature).

The image above shows a “phantasmagoric view,” as winterover Carlos Pobes put it, of the IceCube Lab. Below are two other great shots from the week.
