I didn't know a new station was built (I don't follow the South Pole "scene" hahaha) (Dedicated on Dec 12, 2007)

My interest comes and goes with the South Pole station.

Its the ultimate extreme and very cold, but their webcam is so boring.

Its basically off for six months. One sunrise and sunset a year and very little visible weather to watch. And no time lapses.

Thanks for sharing. I like that high resolution shot of the new station.

Come on, that's one of Kurt's doctored photos of the Sherman Adams Building. There's the OB's Tower on the left!

Wow! You're right, I never knew the South Pole had such a vista...

Gee, I did not know that the MWO tower and buildings were down in the valley - and the tallest peak in the northeast was next to some taller mountains. I must have been out of touch when those mountains grew up - over night.

See what happens when you spend so much time in NC? You lose touch! I don't know which picture is doctored anymore?

You have to watch out for those spy characters. Can never tell what is real or not.

Ah, these pics finally explain the lyrics to the song Roundabout by Yes.

It works just fine. I was just being silly. Its not often you see half a picture flash back and forth a different scene.:p
