There are 13 people staying here for the winter months and they haven’t seen sun light since it set for the final time in May, plunging the region into darkness for four months.
Station staff snapped pictures of this recent aurora which appears to be floating just above the station. Making this image even more spectacular; the Milky Way can clearly be seen shining brightly behind the lovely Southern lights.
