There’s nothing wrong with “quiet,” especially where detector operations are concerned. That’s a good thing. And last week was relatively quiet at the Pole. IceCube’s winterovers did have to trek out to the IceCube Lab anyway, though, for some hands-on work for a routine operation. On their walk, Moreno captured some nice photos of the strong, sharp sastrugi that have developed over winter, while Celas captured a close-up of Moreno’s protected face—a reminder that, sun or no sun, it’s still a cold place. The week’s excitement came from (drumroll) the official sunrise. Although it was rather cloudy most of the time, there were a few moments of clear skies where the sun could clearly be seen low on the horizon (as could a glimpse of the infamous green flash).
