McMurdo Station, Antarctica
Mars-like SkiesThey say after a winterover in Antarctica that the human brain does not operate quite as clearly as before. While I felt pretty sharp after my winter on the Ice, I had to think twice when I walked outside on a Sunday morning to see the bronze, orange, purple, pink, and green streaks across the horizon from horizon to ceiling.
Nacreous clouds are gaseous clouds that form high in the upper atmosphere above Antarctica during the 'springtime.' They catch the sun's rays long before they reach the terrestrial island where a few lucky winterovers can witness the surreal brushstrokes in the sky.
