Midnight sun at Nordkapp

The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon found in latitudes north of the Arctic Circle(as well as south of the Antarctic Circle), where the sun is visible at the local midnight. With adequate weather conditions, the sun is visible for a full 24 hours a day. This is great for travelers planning long days outdoors, as there will be sufficient light for outdoor activities around the clock!

A Scientific Explanation of the Midnight Sun

The Earth orbits the Sun on a plane called the ecliptic. The Earth’s Equator is inclined with the ecliptic by 23°26′. As a result, the North and South poles are in turn inclined toward the Sun for 6 months. Close to the summer solstice, on June 21, the Northern Hemisphere reaches its maximum inclination toward the Sun and the Sun illuminates all the polar area down to latitude +66°34′. As seen from the polar area, the Sun does not set, but only reaches its lowest altitude at midnight. Latitude +66°34′ defines the Arctic Circle (southernmost latitude in the Northern Hemisphere where the midnight sun can be seen).
