Geographic South Pole, 90 degrees South Latitude
After one of the windiest Julys on record here, we finally got some very clear skies and aurora Australis at the geographic South Pole. We can also see Jupiter, Venus and Mars just rising above the horizon now. The sun will be returning to the Pole in a little over 6 weeks. , website: www.polarwinter.com - J.
