In the 24-hour night possible at certain times of the year at the south pole, you can snap full star trail circles like this. Well, you can if you have a heated camera box pointed straight up. This is from the roof of MAPO, the Martin A. Pomerantz Observatory. This was taken on May 1, and you can see some aurora australis in the sky as well. It’s the green glowing haze on the left side.
