What is the midnight sun?

    The midnight sun occurs in summer months at latitudes near the Artic Circle and Antarctic Circle, it is when the sun is visible at midnight (local time).  This means that the sun is visible for 24 hours a day for a number of days – but you will only be able to see it if the weather is fair.  The areas that see it are Canada, Alaska, Denmark, Greenland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia and parts of Iceland.

    Within the Arctic and Antarctic circles, at certain times of year the sun never sets; all “night” long the sun shines brightly. This is the midnight sun.

    Depending on where you are, the length of the midnight sun is different.  In northern Finland for example there’s sunlight for 73 days straight!

    At a different time of year, the opposite also occurs, where the sun never comes up.  This is called polar night.
