Here you see the South Pole's only sunset of 2009. You are looking towards grid south from the stairs at the end of the A1 wing of the elevated station. The A4 wing is on your right. The arches with the heavy equipment shop, the power plant and the UT and carp shops are directly before you, and the smoke shack is on your far left.
We are enjoying an incredible pastel afternoon as we wait for the sun to disappear below the horizon. The process will take more than a day. Once it has left the sky, the sun will remain absent for a full 6 months, returning on the austral vernal equinox.
Have a last look around the place. The South Pole will look a lot different in 3 weeks.
