Jack Duperouzel remembers that the flag was raised on the flagpole each morning by an Australian Federal Policeman who lived in a caravan onsite to provide security. The caravan is visible in this photo.)

Muchea panorama from Verlort

A panorama from south to west – taken from just NE of the Verlort Radar.

This was assembled from 20 frames as the camera panned, hence the central part of the photo is blurred due to camera motion. The red blurs in the distnace behind the trees are not buildings, but are artefacts of the camera motion, the framerate conversion from 24fps film to 29.97fps NTSC, and the video compression.
