Today, I'm going to give a list of six nations where you may see the Midnight Sun and Polar impacts at different times of the year. These two natural phenomena occur during the summer when the sun does not set and during the winter when the sun does not set.
The only six countries where this natural phenomena happens are listed below.
1. The state of Alaska.
It was formerly owned by Russia, but it was sold to the United States of America. It's also known as the "state of magnificent glaciers" by others. Between May and July, the sun does not set. On the Summer Solstice, the sun only sets at 12.30 a.m. This happens in Fairbanks, Alaska, which is south of the Arctic Circle. Fairbanks is 51 minutes ahead of its time zone, hence it mostly happens here.
2. The country of Canada.
Canada is one of the world's largest countries. During the summer, the sun sets in regions like Northwest and Inuvik. For nearly 50 days, these locations experience constant sunlight. The country is completely covered in snow at this time of year.
Here's a link to a video that shows how nights in Canada look at this time of year.
3. The country of Norway.
Norway is known as the "Land of the Midnight Sun" since it is located within the Arctic Circle. For 76 days, the sun does not set in this country for nearly 20 hours between late May and late July.
The following video depicts how the midnight sun appears in Norway.
4. Finland is ranked fourth.
Throughout the summer, the sun does not set for around 76 days, whereas most regions of the country are dark during the winter. Even at night, the sun continues to shine. Many visitors visit the nation during this season to witness this natural occurrence.
5. Sweden is ranked fifth.
Between May and August, the sun does not set due to its geographical location. Around midnight, the sun sets and rises again around four o'clock in the morning. For over 100 days in Sweden, there are no nights.
6. Iceland is number six.
This is the world's largest island by area and Europe's second-largest island after the United Kingdom. The sun never sets here, but rather moves horizontally across the horizon all night. During the summer, this phenomena happens from early May to July. Sunset is at 12 a.m. and sunrise is at 3 a.m.
A YouTube video showing how this natural occurrence occurs in the six countries may be found below.
