A Cumbrian mountaineer and his team have captured images of a rare 'solar corona' display on their expedition in Antarctica.
Leo Houlding, from the Lake District, along with Jean Burgun and Mark Sedon are on a journey to climb the 750m south buttress of a peak called the Spectre.
The 'solar corona' they spotted shows the outermost part of the sun's atmosphere, usually seen during a solar eclipse.
Leo sent this message:
The team still have 850km to cover before they complete their Antarctic journey, which started in early November.
