Do you remember I had to post an old photo on the sunset day because the sunset is so late now?
Well I was walking home from work last night, at 11.30pm, and the sun was just setting.
It was still really light outside, almost as light as it is in the middle of the day.
I can remember some years ago, I was probably 15 or 16 or somewhere around there. We were having a party at the beach along with the neighbors. I can't remember what month it was, but it was in the middle of summer, probably mid July. Anyway, I can remember us all watching the sunset at around 2am!!
So in a way we kind of do get midnight sun here, because the sun doesn't set until after midnight, but unlike further north, it does actually set sometime during the night here.
One of my cousins work on Svalbard.
I would love to go further north to experience the midnight sun, but just as a holiday, as I like my sleep to much to work in a place with midnight sun for 4 whole months.
