The Bulgarian naval research vessel Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii (RSV 421) is approaching Livingston Island. The island's shores are already visible from the deck.
Livingston Island is where the Bulgarian Antarctic base is located. The ship is expected to berth in the South Bay around 6 pm local time, after which the crew and the polar researchers on board will begin immediate loading and unloading activities.
