Y2K South Pole Location
The U.S. Geological Survey arrived at the South Pole in the final week of 1999 to officially determine the location of the "new" South Pole where it would be on 1 January 2000. This steel peg in the foreground with a duct-taped handwritten sign was the initial indicator of the official sppot, soon replaced with a formal staff and plaque during a ceremony on January 1.
