Antarctic Sun Article
There's a great little article that has been posted up on the Antarctic Sun website about husband Anthony and his time-lapse photography.
In other Antarctic-themed media news...
The movie, "Ice People" is going to premier in San Francisco at the end of this month at the "SFIFF" (San Francisco International Film Festival). A couple of years ago, movie-maker Anne Aghion and her film crew traveled to McMurdo Station during the Winfly period in August with the intent to collect footage for this film. For something different, Anthony brought them with him on a traverse to Black Island, the telecommunications ground station for McMurdo. It's about 60 miles away across the ice shelf. The original intent was to be there only a couple days, but some big weather came through and they were stuck there a bit longer. They filmed lots of stuff there, including some of Anthony and apparently he does appear in the film briefly.
So I am planning on traveling up to SF for the premier -- going to catch up with a very good friend of mine from high school that I haven't seen in over 20 years -- should be a good time!

Tomorrow I will be on a plane to the U.S. for a long-awaited visit with family and friends. It might be a spell before I can post again (hopefully not longer than a week). So as Bugs Bunny would say, "Bon Voyagee!"
