A separate topic will ensure it will not get lost.

Here you go:

"North Pole Images"

And videos.

This video came up on our local SW France paper - a mad adventurer, lucky escape....


Sadly there is about 8 minutes of blah blah - with the escapade in the middle - but actual video is pretty scary!  Someone may be able to get a clean version...

"At the top of fjords in Arctic Norway, the photographer was met with an unknown sky. Was it aliens? Was it the supernatural? He captured a series of photos to record the night and didn’t know until the next day that the colours were actually created by the auroral zone upwelling rocket experiment from Andøya Space Centre, which dispersed gas tracers to probe winds in Earth’s upper atmosphere"

From the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.

Its interesting that is in a comedy photography category. For me, having heard of the ongoing struggle and demise of these creatures, the bear might as well be mourning.

Interesting perspectives. And of course that particular bear might be doing just fine.

To me that photo reveals something about how differently people look at the natural world.

My perambulations through EOSDIS brought me this today - a cyclonic weather structure in the Chukchi.

I can’t end my fascination of the Queen Elizabeth Islands! With the fresh snow and fall sun angle I had to spend some time making a new wallpaper from today’s satellite imagery. I cleaned up the photos to really enhance the terrain.

pls!

Amazing places, which are going to be totally transformed over the next century.  I suspect the Northern Boreal forest will return there, possibly assisted by us in an attempt to stabilize climate in some sort of sustainable fashion.

Yeah, I do agree with you there. I think the forest region will certainly be expanding, and with it will come a more moisture laden atmosphere. I will be interested to see how the north coast of Greenland/CAA act as the ice there detaches from the coast more often. I would imagine that is am amazing and rugged coastline.
pls!

Barrow sea ice cam works again. Perfect timing to watch the new sea ice forming.

Is this where we get to claim we see UFOs?  It just hovers for several days in early May 2020.  Awesome!  Good catch, Uniquorn!! :D :P ::)


Looks like a spot on the lens.

A few days ago the sun set for the last time this year at Clavering Island, and the webcam today shows a pretty twilight with a purple tinge in the sky. Good night, Greenland.

Just for it's special beauty and ice retreated, perhaps one last time.
