Clouds form and dissipate, snow falls, and the sun emerges in this time lapse video shot during the transit from the central Ross Sea to the entrance of the McMurdo ice channel. At the end of the video, Beaufort Island, Cape Bird, and Mount Erebus come into view in that order. It represents 13.5 hours of real time.
