Satellite photo of McMurdo

This is a recent image of the peninsula and open water near McMurdo Station on Ross Island.  There are 2 red dots on the bottom.  McMurdo on the left and Scott Base New Zealand on the right. If you click the image and make it larger you can see the channel cut by the Ice Breaker into Winter Quarter Bay.  In the middle of the photo is the Ebebus Ice Tongue.  It's the glacier that comes down Mt. Ebebus into the McMurdo Sound.
