Look who’s at the South Pole. Okay, we can’t see their faces in this image, but we trust that those are IceCube’s winterovers. They took one of their remaining opportunities to get a self-portrait out at the geographic South Pole marker under a starry sky. It was a generally quiet week at the Pole. They’re still watching and rating winter film festival videos. Next week they’re looking forward to the South Pole Iron Chef, with both of IceCube’s winterovers on the same team. This week’s photos focused on the IceCube Lab—with a bit of dawn behind it, lit up in red, and a vertical shot that draws the viewer’s eye up to the heavens. Beautiful.
