The auroras were still out in full force last week, as if lingering in their farewell before twilight steps up. The moon was also rising, competing with the auroras behind the IceCube Lab, below. Last week was busy for the winterovers, with lots of troubleshooting activity most days. But there was also a long weekend, which lent itself nicely to a marathon board game session—Twilight Imperium, which took over three hours just to set it up!
