Random Pole shots

Sastrugi, the wind-formed snow shapes.

Sun dogs caused by ice crystals in the atmosphere. The person in the picture is recovering air-dropped materials.

The South Pole Station library.

The Mass Casualty Drill: test of emergency response systems at the Pole. This year's drama was an airplane making an emergency landing, passengers get clear, and then the plane explodes killing and injuring firefighters.

South Pole public transit.
