The auroras are back! Although the sky is not yet dark, auroras appeared for the first time this austral winter. It was a good thing the detector ran well this week, because the winterovers were excited to experiment photographing the colorful night sky. Winterover Johannes captured these beautiful pictures of the faint gray and green auroras. The well-behaved detector also gave the winterovers time to make other adjustments to the IceCube system.
