Antarctica

Happy Sunset

The sun has been setting all week at the pole. I first saw it set on
Wednesday, then later that night, up and down all the next day, and
then what I think will be a final appearance last night.

We hit a low temperature, so far for year, yesterday at -70.9degC. This
produced a large temperature inversion, giving us a last (maybe) look
at the sun. It has since clouded over - raising the temperature to
-50s.

Happy sunsets to everyone.
