I'm really excited about how this time-lapse turned out. It is put together from just over 1200 images from 3:30pm to 4:45pm July 6th.

Each day is slowly getting a little bit brighter. Last weekend was the annual midwinter celebration at Scott Base and McMurdo. The weekend started out at Scott Base with one of the best meals that I have ever eaten. I lost count, but I believe that there were 7 or 8 courses.
