What does a complete day of sun appear like at the earth’s southernmost point? Robert Schwarz, who was stationed in the antarctic for 15 years as part of the speculative Keck job, shot an illuminating timelapse while at the snowy place that reveals the brilliant star drifting above the horizon for a whole five-day duration. Shot in March 2017, the video records the brilliant sky prior to the very first sundown in months, when the pole experiences a dark duration from April to August.

Schwarz files a range of natural phenomena, consisting of the dancing lights of the aurora australis, moon stages, and the Miky Way, on Vimeo. (by means of Kottke)
