Midnight sun in Alaska
Let’s experience the summer solstice in Alaska, when the sun never sets, in this stunning video. It’s the midnight sun.
In the days right before and after the summer solstice, i.e. the year’s longest days, the sun doesn’t set in some areas of the polar circles and the poles, but it shines even at midnight. In the boreal hemisphere, summer solstice usually is on 21 June.
There are just a few places where the midnight sun can be admired. It is an experience limited to few Norwegian cities or few populations in Russia, Canada, and Greenland. This video, realised by Ben Sturgulewski, shows the enchanting day of the summer solstice and midnight sun in ste Amercan state of Alaska, whose territory is crossed by the Arctic polar circle.
