Antarctica, SANAE IV base.
The month of September was very busy with geomagnetic activity as indicated by the equipment at the Antarctic South African base. Unfortunately due to bad weather (white out conditions) the SANAE 50 team missed out on the Aurora displays. 24 hour daylight is quickly approaching and we hope to see some aurora action in this next few weeks before that happens. Last night we got to see nice auroras when it got dark.
