In the summer time at Scott Base the sun is above the horizon for 4 months, from roughly the end of the third week of October until the end of the third week of February. This shows the movement of the sun over a full 24 hour period near the peak of summer.

Camera was set to take a photo once every one minute and one second (so that the second hand would be moving). Lens was set on f22 to get enough depth of field to have the watch and horizon both in focus. A modified Orion equatorial telescope mount was used to track the sun. Camera and tracking powered by solar panel and batteries.

Fidel Castro marked his 89th birthday by insisting the United States owes Cuba “many millions of dollars” because of 50 years of the American trade embargo.

Yes, of course. Also, we somehow made communism not work.
