This amazing photo has just come in from Tim Delany, who is Winter Technical Support, working at Antarctica New Zealand’s Scott Base.
im visits the Arrival Heights lab several times a week as part of his role to check and maintain the long running scientific experiments that are housed there.
The cloud cleared for the first time this week as he did his rounds and revealed a stunning Aurora Australis lighting up the starry sky. He used a long exposure to capture the Aurora…and this has enhanced the light effects in the pitch black day/night sky!
Current Weather (Friday PM NZT)
The guys are wrapping up in full ECW (extreme cold weather) clothing when they go outside the base…inside the base it is a steady 18 degrees Celsius year round.
