wow what a useless post of yours. pulling out the old grammar nazi routine. original!

thanks for playing though
The station will run all year round and includes 210 m2 (2,300 sq ft) of laboratory surface, divided into 12 compartments; in total, double the area of previous stations. Within the 15 accommodation containers there is room for 40 occupants to sleep. All inner rooms of the platform are built as self-contained units, some of which have aligned connecting passages, depending on their size. The compartmentalized interior of the station is enclosed in titanium protective sheet metal as thin as paper, with insulating Polyurethane supra foam. The “structure section” image shows the simulated Antarctic snow-rooted crane between green metal girders. All items shown later found themselves on Antarctic snows in the form of Neumayer III.
InteriorIn addition to the previously mentioned laboratories and accommodation areas, there is a south-facing lounge with many windows, a washing room containing two washing machines and two dryers, a Sauna, an IT-room, showering and washing rooms, a dining room with a serving window connected to the kitchen, a conference room, medical treatment and operating rooms, various storage rooms, a large refrigerating area, a dressing room, a heating-system room, a schooling and planning room and finally a water treatment room.
 Datamain building height: 29.2 m (96 ft)
platform surface area: 68 × 24 m (223 × 79 ft)
entire mass: approx. 2,300 t
interior surface area (4 floors): 4,473 m2 (48,150 sq ft)
heated surface area (3 floors): 1,850 m2 (19,900 sq ft)
depth under station: 8.20 m (26.9 ft)
3 diesel generators: 6 × 75 kW, maximum/average power needs 150 kW/105 kW
E-10 wind generator: 30 kW
USV: 2 × 20 kW for 20 minutes
Polardiesel needed during a year (heating, power and transportation): 315,000 litres (83,000 US gal)
water supply : 25 kW snow melting using heat of the generators
Normally, nine people live and work at Neumayer Station during the Antarctic winter: A medical doctor who also acts as the head of the station, a meteorologist, an airchemist, two geophysicists, an engineer, an electrician, a radio operator/electronics engineer and a cook. During 2010, additional 2 construction workers stay at Neumayer the whole winter through.
Each team overwintering at the station stays there for 14 to 15 months. For nine months of that time, their only link to the outside world is by radio and internet.

What I see is a steam plume in front of a sodium light. The brightest part of the "fire" is directly in front of the light source, outwardly dimming to each side of it, A flame would have a more even distribution of brightness.
I could be wrong, but that's what I make of it.

Why do you want to try and connect this to transformers exploding in a completely different part of the world? Not everything is connected.
That is one cold and desolate place omg! I hope nobody was hurt. It shows a fire and explosion.
