There’s Nothing In The World Quite Like Alaska’s Midnight Sun

In the far north, residents put up with the long, dark, cold winters for the excellent reward that is the endless sun. Summer days stretch on and on in all their glorious golden splendor. Long after night has fallen in most of the world, northern Alaskans and the rest of the people crazy enough to live above the Arctic Circle, can bask in the glow of the long hours of daylight, commonly referred to as the “midnight sun”. In Northern Europe, they also call this phenomenon “white nights”. See how people enjoy and celebrate the midnight sun!
