Stars and auroras at pegasus






These are a few pictures from Pegasus Airfield. Since there are no flights coming or leaving the station the airfield is somewhat barren except for the few heavy equipment workers who groom the airfield daily to keep it smooth and ready for the next flight that comes in september.

The Bowling Alley...






These are a few pics of our bowling alley. This is the oldest bowling alley equipment in the world. The pins must be reset by hand, therefore in order for both lanes to be up and running there must be two pinsetters, otherwise someone is in for a great leg workout.

The smurf hut...




Earlier on this week one of the small smurf huts at our airfield (pegasus) somehow cought on fire.
Firefighters were call to the scene but to no avail, the burning flames were too much for the smurf hut to handle.

Hut Point, Start, and Auroras...

videoThis neat little time lapse was captured by a friend of mine, James. He used a 8mm lens camera that give you a 180 degree view, by 360 degree view. You have to look very closely, but you can see the horizon wrapped around the bottom of the lens and it comes together towards the top of the lens, you then have to look even closer to see Orion's belt at the start of the video, then i'm not sure i'll get the order correct, but i think it's the southern cross in the center, then scorpio around the horizon, then in the center again you should see the milky way. You can also see a few auroras through out the video and a small patch of clouds towards the end. enjoy.
