Where do you go to see a movie in Antarctica? The drive-in theatre, of course. Michael Zupanc reports from Australia's Davis Station on the Antarctic coast: "We made our own drive-in theatre by clearing some snow off the sea ice and using a nearby cliff as the movie screen." On August 7th there was a double feature--the Blues Brothers and the aurora australis:


"It was a nice, clear night and the auroras provided excellent mood lighting for Jake and Elwood," says Zupanc.

We hope they're in the mood for more. A solar wind stream is heading for Earth and it could spark a new round of geomagnetic activity when it arrives on August 25th. High-latitude sky watchers should remain alert for auroras.

Do you suppose any of them are brave insane enough to get out and dance in front of the screen? XD
