Midnight sun - polar day, a photo by Ginas Pics on Flickr.

The Arctic Circle marks the southern extremity of the polar day (24-hour sunlit day, often referred to as the "midnight sun") and polar night (24-hour sunless night). North of the Arctic Circle, the sun is above the horizon for 24 continuous hours at least once per year ... and this was right now when I took this photo at 0:00 hrs

This photo was taken att 0:00 hrs today
The area can be defined as north of the Arctic Circle (66° 33'N), the approximate limit of the midnight sun and the polar night.
We stayed up all night to watch the sun not setting down. Tempertures about 10 degrees Celsius but bright sun at mid night
