Preparing the surface of the river ice on the Tanana River, Alaska, for the raising of the tripod this weekend. Lots of festivities organised for the annual Nenana Ice Classic

Am I the only one who sees a flattened polar bear in this who's got his head resting on Svalbard?

Sober? What's that?  ::)

The cool part is when you see it on Worldview and move through the days. The shape is always there, but... you'll see...  8)

Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon that causes people to see patterns in a random stimulus. This often leads to people assigning human characteristics to objects.

Cool! Learned something new again. :) I had no idea they had a word for that.

Is there a psychedelic thread as well? I just found this amazing view of the polar vortex.

OK, Japan isn't "Arctic", but this image makes for a challenging jigsaw puzzle. Forgive me?

Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.

Midnight looking north over the frozen harbour at Longyearbyen, Svalbard.

The orange glow shows that it's only 10 days before the sun will be up all day there (April 19th !).
