The first sunset after May 16th.

The sun didn´t set at all in the Northern parts of Finland between May 16th and July 29th. So for 74 days in a village of Nuorgam the sun was above the horizon at night. It is an amazing feeling to see sun shining at night, and there is not much difference between a day and night.

Our nights here in Southern Finland are already dark, the sun sets at 22.18 and rises at    4.50.

This photo taken is about midnight at the end of June on the area we live.

The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months in places north of the Arctic Circle or south of the Antarctic Circle, when the Sun remains visible at the local midnight.
