6 Countries That Can Not Escape the Sun 24 Hours

We are so much comfortable with the “12 hours day and 12 hours night” because of the rotation of the earth around the sun, aren’t we? But, there are some places that experience sunlight for straight 24 hours without a break.

The phenomenon when sun never sets is known as ‘The Midnight Sun’. This natural phenomenon occurs in local summer months in the north of the Arctic and south of the Antarctic Circle. The opposite phenomenon called Polar Night occurs when sun remains below the horizon in winters.

Norway is known as the land of midnight sun. Due to Norway’s high altitude, there are seasonal variations in daylight because of the period of refracted sunlight is long. In this country, for about a period of 76 days from late May to late July, the sun never sets for about 20 hours.

In most parts of this country, the sun shines for straight 73 hours during summers and the citizens of this country experience no sunlight during winters. The midnight sun shines above the Arctic circle, but here the sun briefly dips beyond the horizon and then rises again which results in blurring of the boundary between dying night and dawning day.

From early May until late August, the sun sets around midnight and rises again at around four in the morning in Sweden. In this country, the periods of constant sunshine last for up to six months of an year.
