New South Pole Station Aerial Panorama

In the evening the sun is at grid North, casting its rays at the front of the New Station. Motivation enough to get back out and get the kite flying again. The panorama gives a good idea of the size of the New Station. You have me down there for scale. To the left of the New Station you can see the Dome.

The sun is still very low above the horizon. Watch for the long shadow I am casting. I also put a hotspot right at the Geographic South Pole. Try to find it.

    INCREDIBLE photos and use of software. I’ve been playing “find the kite flier,” … it seems you can run, but you cannot hide… your shadow usually gives away your location.
    As an occasional kite flier, this whole KAP intrigues me. Can you tell me about the equipment used, the difficulties encountered and the time it undoubtedly takes to meld the photos so seamlessly.

    Well done!!
