Docking in Darkness

June 11, 2010
U.S. Antarctic Program participants handle the ropes to secure the docking of a ship at Palmer Station, Anvers Island, Antarctica. Swirling snow is illuminated by the ship's lights. This photo was taken in the month of June, when most of the day is enveloped in darkness. Palmer is one of three U.S. research stations on Antarctica. The National Science Foundation operates them all. (Date of Image: June 8, 2000)
