Sun Dog

This is one of our famous "sun dogs" that we get at the South Pole. This occurs when the sun reflects off snow crystals flying through the sky. This one is an extra special sight to see because of the double rings and also the ring that parallels the horizon. We don't get to see these elaborate ones too often! I had a visit from a my friend "Flat Luke". He is hanging out with me at the U.S. Post Office before he started he journey home. For extra activities I work in the United States Post Office as an official Postal Clerk at the most southern post office in the world! Don't worry, we still have lines to wait in, especially at the end of the season.

  1. Dude. That's spectacular! Way to capture the rings! Seriously, National Geographic material!

    p.s. are you posting from the field camp destruction zone, or are you back from that assignment?
