Midnight sun - Norway


From a trade with Rita, from Italy, I got this amazing postcard with the midnight sun seen from North Cape. It's already one of my favorite postcards!

"The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon occurring in summer months at latitudes north and nearby to the south of the Arctic Circle, and south and nearby to the north of the Antarctic Circle where the sun remains visible at the local midnight. Given fair weather, the sun is visible for a continuous 24 hours, mostly north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle. The number of days per year with potential midnight sun increases the farther poleward one goes from the equator." In: Wikipedia
