2017-2018 Weddel Seals - Mawson & Davis Adare Seas - POI and Fun Finds


I came across 2 bright white orbs on an ice outcrop in the middle of nowhere. Cagey lose some of her balls again? The poly is way off the top of the map and I zoomed out to -5 and noticed the lone ice outcrop. Zooming in it at +1 and then +2 gave them away. :slightly_smiling_face:


Thanks Jim, that was my knee jerk instinct after looking at too many youtube clips of ice breakers :laughing:
I wonder if where those tracks end is where the likes of the Aurora Australis comes in then passengers are transferred to the station via caterpillar vehicles and what not :thinking:
And I wonder is the runway still runway-able in the thaw during summer time :thinking:


Those were the ones I was looking at!!! The larger one initially in the question panel I thought may be a ship but was not sure. Thanks for the information!!


Here’s “The Claw!” (Straight up from the poly which is mostly off-photo.)


UFO’s??:grin: Though they are square and look like windows in the snow or lights shining through the walls of a tent.


At first I thought they were @cageycat’s eyes looking up. :smiley_cat:


Great examples, Em. your genius is showing.:face_with_monocle:


I found you @Jim Sideways, you be!

Oh boy @cageycat these are especially creative!! :wink:


or I’m just very twisted? or snow-silly?


Like stars in a black sky… from the poly, go left and up

And, there’s a blue shelf under an ice island (iceberg I guess) … beautiful coloring.

The “little (ice) dipper” to the left of the poly

Go north…

Slightly goofy face within the poly

Nice anklet socks on that kid, showing one huge ear as he looks over his shoulder. Saw 2 ears on a girl like that, on Botched but I turned it off before the surgeons repaired them.

i think the kid missed seeing the big whale, top right corner.


Interesting video. http://abc7.com/science/what-lies-beneath-antarcticas-ice/2991919/ :octopus: :fish: :blowfish: :shark::shell: :crab: :shrimp: :squid:


Nope, @Jim7 I finally figured it out. Not a UFO or @cageycat eyes. It’s an incognito Russian outpost! :rofl:


At one point I thought maybe someone dropped their eyeglasses which were reflecting the light back at the satellite’s camera! Hey! You never know! :grinning:


Amazing video. 2min35 seconds not to be missed. :grinning: :artificial_satellite: :rocket:



@Wilms - I think that this is the correct link: http://www.planetary.org/multimedia/video/planetary-post/planetary-post-space-robots-in-antarctica.html


Thank you @Shaul. You are correct. Not sure why this happens, but I don’t always get the “http://” on websites. Would love to fix my post so people don’t click on it needlessly. May be a mission for @cageycat . (Sorry @cageycat).


Wilms, you can fix your own post using the Edit pencil below right of every post entry you make (naturally, you can’t edit other peoples posts though :wink: )
image Just click on the pencil and the text box will pop open and functions in exactly the same way as it would replying to a post :slightly_smiling_face:
Nothing complicated to it at all :wink:
