South Pole Winter 2018
Above, the 2018 winterover photo, by Hans Boenish. With a celestial event going on overhead, the 28 July total lunar eclipse, which was only total between 0730 and 0913 SP time. Hans reported that the temperature was -55ºF, with winds of 25 knots gusting to 32 knots. BRRR! Oh, the other celestial object above the eclipsed Moon is the planet Mars. Here's a larger view of Mars and the Moon by Johannes Werthebach.
