Emperor penguins

emperorpenguins Taking a break while the Array looks for another “transmission.”

It’s a really nice day, somewhere in the mid-30’s. We are nearing the summer equinox here (December 21st), on which we’ll have a full 24 hours of sunlight.

It’s a lot harder to get close to the penguins when Buzz is around, so after our walk I left him on Mt. Buzz and ventured out alone. I often caught myself staring at the Array down in the valley, at the twenty shiny metallic dishes fixed on a whisper, a zillion miles away. Then I snapped this photo, and forgot about everything for a little while.
