Summit Station, Greenland
Details:
We are experiencing clear skies and cooler temperatures at Summit Station now. The darker skies, without moonlight are bringing out the stars and auroras. These pictures were taken at our Mobile Science Facility where a project named ICECAPS has several instruments studying Arctic clouds. The lidars (there are actually two) are now visible in either dark skies or ice fog. The reds on the snow are reflections from a nearby beacon on a fifty meter tower. Did I mention cooler temps... -42C/44F
