IceCube's winterovers had the good luck to enjoy clear weather last week. They were able to capture some dramatic photos of the sunset. The week ended with the traditional sunset dinner—a lovely meal, complete with fancy dessert—and an open house for the Dark Sector, where the winterovers talked about IceCube science and showed off the DOMs. The moon’s rise was also spectacular, coming up directly behind the ceremonial Pole, as captured from the comfort of the galley.
