The aurora australis over the Dark Sector at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. The Dark Sector is so-named due to the absence of light and radio wave interference for science experiments. The bright spot above the ground shield in the foreground is Jupiter. The white streaks of light going up is the Milky Way.
