Moon Glow

March 20, 2013
The 10-meter South Pole Telescope silhouetted against the glow of the moon. The moonlight creates a lunar halo cross, similar to a sundog. The telescope is located at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, Antarctica. Amundsen-Scott 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.
