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.
A mountaineer that is known for his death-defying exploits, including tackling the world's most extreme rock faces, is back home in the Lake District taking on a new role.
Leo Houlding has become a trustee of the Outward Bound Trust and plans to encourage youngsters from across the country to enjoy the great outdoors.
