Question 19: Can you see the stars and constellations? What is your favorite star you saw so far? Do you set lots of planets?

The South Pole only has one sunrise and one sunset every year. The sunrise happens in September and the sunset happens in March. That means that the sun has been up the entire time I've been here. I have noticed that the shadows have gotten longer, so the sun is definitely going down, but I'll be gone long before the 2-day-long sunset or the two-week-long dusk before all light disappears from the sky.

Because it's light out, I can only see one star and one planet right now. Can you guess what they are?
