July 8, 2010
The 10-meter South Pole Telescope silhouetted against the glow of the moon. The moonlight creates a lunar aalo cross, similar to a sundog. The telescope is located at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, Antarctica. Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station is one of three U.S. research stations on the Antarctic continent. All of the stations are operated by the National Science Foundation's U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP). Further information about USAP is available Here.
