Place Name: South Pole 2013
Elevation: 9300 ft.
Coordinates: 90° South
Location: Antarctica
Each January first, the position of 90 degrees South is determined and marked with a large marker of a unique design. And each year, day by day, the marker is carried away by the movement of the glacial ice cap. This year’s marker shows the position of the planets as viewed from the South Pole on January 1, 2013. Seven  planets surround the sun, the moon and the Southern Cross constellation. In the very center is a star that marks the South Pole.
