This is the first scene of the documentary, where thousands of penguins are facing into snow storm.
Narrator : Imagine our world without sun.
Male Emperor Penguins are facing the nearest that exists on planet Earth - winter in Antarctica.

I feel like there has to be something after "the nearest", like "the nearest winter that exists on earth . . .", Is it allowed to omit some words like this in English?
And second, I don't exactly understand the meaning of "the nearest" here. Does it mean "these penguins are the first ones to face the winter"?
