The 4th of July is now behind us, but this view of the South Pole station continues with the red, white, and blue theme, while the other side of the station just shows the blue sky and the white snow. These image were only possible due to a bright moon, bright enough to illuminate the tracks in the snow surface. But it’s still the dark of winter, although fabulously so—check out the photo of the Milky Way below that IceCube winterover Johannes also captured last week! That’s a starry sky. Have you forgotten about the massive puzzle? They have not, things are still moving along.
