Andøya, Arctic Northern Norway 69°N

At 69 degrees north the sun does not set between May 22th and July 20th. Instead it just rolls along the horizon and starts raising again. At this latitude it set and rise in a diagonal line, as opposed to closer to the equator where its path is more straight. Because of this, as well as other factors such as ice crystals in the atmosphere and layers of hot and cold air, the colors are unique, even close to unreal. Here, the nights during summer are spectacular light  shows, a stark contrast to the time of darkness, when the sun is under the horizon for almost two months. Who needs sleep anyway?
Thanks for looking!
