Caption: Antarctic expedition astronomy. British Royal Navy lieutenant Teddy Evans (1880-1957) observing an occultation of Jupiter on 8 June 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Evans is on the telephone to British meteorologist George Simpson, inside the hut timing the event. Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 (including Evans and Simpson) spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in March 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole. Photographed by Herbert George Ponting.
