Robert Blackwho was stationed in Antarctica for 15 years the experimental Keck project, filmed a revealing time-lapse at the snow-covered location that hovers the bright star over the horizon for five days. The footage was captured in March 2017 and captures the bright sky just before the first sunset in months, when the pole experiences a dark period from April to August.
