The Midnight Sun (in Norway, Longyearbyen)

The midnight sun in Norway is a natural phenomenon that has caused a great impact on its visitors. That is why it is so tempting to live that experience in Northern Norway. According to some world data, sunrise and sunset times are affected by the high situation in the hemisphere. The days in summer are longer and shorter in winter. Usually, the sunrise in June begins at 3:50 am and the sunset is at 10:44 pm, that is, the day lasts 18:54 hours. On the contrary, the sunrise in December begins at 9:10 am and the sunset is at 3:14 pm, that is, the day lasts 6:04 hours.

This impressive early sunset event makes the days short at that time and the white nights occur when the midnight sun reigns.

The winter solstice celebrations in each nation are different and unique.
