From my window

These are the views this morning from the window in Medical:

The flags of the 12 signatory nations to the original Antarctic treaty are back flying at the ceremonial pole, which is a few feet away from the actual geographic pole. The station is casting a long shadow that almost reaches ARO in the background.

The skiway is being groomed again as you can see it in front of the Dark Sector buildings MAPO and the South Pole Telescope.

The moon is up too, a faint spector at the end of the skiway.
It's -83 degrees F out and simply beautiful with soft pink light from the sun low on the horizon. We'll still have a few weeks to enjoy this before the summer crowds begin pouring in.
