A White Night in Norway

A White Night is when the sun only dips a bit below the horizon and then comes back up. This happens in midsummer in places that are near the Arctic Circle. Redditor uspn took this photograph at 1AM local time, and explained that dusk and dawn are at the same time, so the night never got completely dark. The lake is named Lysvatnet, on the Norwegian island of Senja. The original photograph is much larger. Link

I'd love to hear the experiences of someone who lives that close to the Arctic Circle! A friend of mine moved to Alaska for a few years, and it took her quite some time to get used to three-hour dark in summer and three-hour daylight in winter.
