The Midnight Sun

Post by caysa on Wed Jun 16, 2010 10:25 pm


If you want to see how it looks almost real time check this address http://alk.tiehallinto.fi/alk/frames/kelikamerat-frame.html . Those are all road cams that shows traffic and weather on the roads. But you can see a lot of stuff if you are lucky. The pics refresh every now and then, some more often than others.

The page looks like this. On the left you see the green map. Click on Lapin lääni (Lapland). Lapland cameras will occur to the right. I drew a line where the polar circle is, anything above that should show SUN (if the weather is clear) 24/7. Nowhere in Finland will it be dark tho, so have a look around Some of the cams in Lapland have really beautiful views!!!

It was really hard to see the moon here as the nights are so light. No use to even try and capture it on a picture. In mid Finland and more north they did not see it at all faint
