The midnight sun
From Lofoten. Shot some weeks ago. Around one a clock in the night!
The midnight sun occurs in the local summer months in places north of the Arctic Circle or south of the Antarctic Circle. The sun remains visible at midnight.
The number of days per year with potential midnight sun increases the farther towards either pole one goes.
At the poles themselves, the sun rises and sets only once each year (June and December). During the six months that the sun is above the horizon, it spends the days continuously moving in circles, gradually spiralling higher and reaching its highest circuit of the sky at the summer solstice.
The day of the solstice is either the longest day of the year (summer solstice) or the shortest day of the year (winter solstice)
