The Physics of Sunset, Thur March 22 (JRS)

We’ve learned a few things about the sunset, and it’s relatively easy to see them since everything happens so slowly. It all has to do with the refraction of the light caused by the Earth’s atmosphere.  For more, higher-res pictures, see the gallery: South Pole Sunset.

The Land of the Setting Sun - Tues March 20 (JRS)

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

We’ve been living in a world of sunlight for 4 months. The last sunset that we saw was in McMurdo, when the sun would swoop just below the mountains for about an hour a day, back in October. My shadow has been getting longer and longer during my daily walk out to the ARO building. I’ve been taking my time on the walk as the colors of sunset have begun to show on the horizon, and the landscape has transformed in to a myriad of light and shadow. The sun sets only once a year here at the South Pole, and I want to take the time to enjoy it. It’s so weird to see the sun setting.  For more, higher-res pictures, see the gallery: South Pole Sunset.

Moriba and Casey, our fantastic friends from CA who moved to Maui shortly before our move to the ice (By the way - you should check out their rental property if you want to go to Maui — http://www.mauivacationcenter.com/), made a video of their new digs, the kids, starbucks, and general shots of maui and sent it to us shortly before closing for winter.  When we finally got a chance to watch it tonight - I had a revelation.

Wine Tasting – Saturday, March 10, 2007 (JRS)

The first major social occasion after station closing was a night of wine tasting that our physician’s assistant, Heidi, set up.  As we mentioned in a previous blog, we spent a day bringing in all of the alcohol for the winter, and that included a very wide selection of new wines.  So, Heidi sent out an email and collected some money from everyone interested, and we had a wine tasting party.
