Happy Midwinter 2021 from the Antarctic Legacy of South AFrica

Midwinter on the 21st of June is the main celebration of the year in Antarctica on most national bases. It comes in the middle of winter on the shortest day of the year outside the Antarctic Circle and at the pivot point of the period of continuous darkness inside the Antarctic Circle. Midwinter is the midpoint of a time of extreme isolation.

The Antarctic Legacy of South Africa sends its midwinter greetings to the SANAE 60, Marion 78 and Gough 66. May you enjoy your Midwinter celebrations.  Best wishes also from ALSA to all previous team members, may you celberate this day with great memories from the past.
