What is the Midnight Sun?
The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs during the summer in places south of the Antarctic Circle and north of the Arctic Circle – including Northern Norway.
The earth is rotating at a tilted axis relative to the sun, and during the summer months, the North Pole is angled towards our star. That’s why, for several weeks, the sun never sets above the Arctic Circle. Source- visitnorway.com
Watching Midnight Sun was a special moment.
One can notice the orange-yellowish glow in the sky.
For a person in my part of the world…one can never dream of seeing the Sun at the night and this experience is amazing!
