These are very high clouds which reflect the sun and appear bright white
with an iridescent tinge - they're really beautiful. And you can see a
time-lapse video of them on my

The colours are just amazing.

How much longer are you down there now?

Wow, that's beautiful. I always wondered how much light you would have at Rothera at mid-winter. It must be amazing to see this glimmer in the almost permanent darkness :)

Geodyne: I'm here until the 5th March, when I fly back to the Falklands and then go jollying round South America before heading back to Blighty.

Euphro: despite the sun being below the horizon for three weeks during midwinter, we still get about four hours of twilighty daylight each day. If you watch the timelapse, you'll see what it looks like.

Thanks :) I tried to get the timelapse video to work but Winamp doesn't seem to like it.

Ah, it's MPEG-4 AVC (aka H264) - it'll work in Quicktime or Media Player Classic

I got it to work in Nero Showtime :) What a wonderful sequence; absolutely sublime. Gorgeous changes of colour and lighting and weather.

No more superlatives - usually find videos on moblog a bit irritating - but that was something else - will revisit tomorrow and look thro' all your blog - thanks
