Sunset

Repeating my mistake from Thanksgiving, or maybe it was Christmas, I didn’t take many photos of sunset or our sunset meal. Here’s the sun, as seen though our generator exhaust contrail:

We’re far enough South that we can clearly see the Sun isn’t a sphere, as is commonly believed

We had the choice of a few different mains for the big sunset dinner, I had halibut with potato gnocchi, which was very tasty and nicely portioned too!

Of course, the blinds were kept open, and the sun was very low to the horizon.  Hence, R was able to make his shadow puppets without using as much electricity as usual. We’re all about efficiency here at South Pole Station.
