IceCube winterover Marc stationed himself nicely to get this photo of the sun setting behind the ceremonial South Pole. He photographed it from a distance last month, under clear skies when the sun was still high. But you don’t need a month for the environment to look different. The two photos below of the IceCube Lab (ICL) were taken a mere two days apart, from almost the same vantage point. The windy weather in between left the ICL’s towers and stairs coated in a layer of snow. And it made for unpleasant weather for Marc and Hrvoje to contend with while out taking IceTop snow depth measurements, a task best done in daylight.
