Radar dome Leningradskaya base Oates Land

The radar dome at the abandoned 'Leningradskaya' research base in Oates Land. The last occupants clearly left in a hurry when the base closed in 1992 - everything valuable and portable was stripped out, but the empty crew quarters still have faded posters on the walls and old equipment and vehicles lie scattered and rusting in the snow around the battered buildings, Jan 2005.
