Last McMurdo sunset of the season (10/24/10 1253)
One of the interesting thing about living in Antarctica is the long hours of light over the summer. Last night we had our last sunset until February at 1253 AM. Sunrise was at 0221 AM. We have entered the season of 24 hours of sunlight. It is weird to leave a building late at night and walk across base in bright sunlight to go to bed. My dorm room has only one small window, which is covered with cloth to make the room dark at night. It works pretty well. In honor of the last sunset, I decided to share some sunset photos that I have taken over the past couple of weeks.
I may catch one last Antarctica sunset if I remain on the continent until February 20, 2011. Until then, I will miss the gorgeous pinks, oranges and reds that painted the skies nightly.
