In the polar regions the sun shines 24 hours for a day or more (depending on the latitude) near the summer solstice of the hemisphere. Here the sun shines in the midnight from the North Cape at the northern end of Norway, one of the northernmost points in Europe (lat: 71º 10’ N). As noted by the photographer “The exposures with no filter were obtained every 10 minutes, starting at midnight (left) to show the solar apparent movement almost parallel to the horizon.” The North Cape is only 2100 km away from the North Pole. The midnight sun can be seen here from 14th of May to the 31st of July.
