Palmer Station in Antarctica


This twilight photo, taken at Palmer Station in Antarctica, hints at what the melting edge of an ice-covered hemisphere might look like around a tidally locked, terrestrial planet orbiting a red dwarf star. Much of such a hypothetical planet's water could get trapped in ice layers on the world's permanent night side. Credit: Perri Barbour/United States Antarctic Program
