It was reported early in the day that we would reach the edge of the sea ice at night. Although many MOSAiC students study polar sciences, this was the first opportunity for many to actually see the sea ice. We cheered at the first glimpse! It was only a few small pieces at first but more and more as the night went on. It was exhilarating to finally get to the ice edge, the whole reason we were there.
