Aurora season has started at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. Although the sun is long gone, its faint radiance still emanates from below the horizon - so that half the sky is lit up by twilight, while the other half is brightened by the dancing lights of the Aurora Australis.

The month of March was marked by an incredible number of storms and the amount of rain pour-ing down on the station. Massive gusts of wind, sometimes exceeding 50 knots, blew hard against our buildings. The frequent rain and precipitation made it hard for the scientists to get out on the water for sampling. March also marked a special milestone for Palmer Station as the community celebrated Palmer Station’s 50th anniversary.
