December 22 will be the longest night 2015

This night will be Winter Solstice and the days will begin to becom longer, a little every day. I love it, as the place where I live is almost at the Arctic Circle and for some time the sun will be above the horizon about one hour - even if the daylight will be here a bit longer. The snow makes things a bit brighter, so it will be bearable somehow. We'll get the light back, as during Midsummer it will be daylight both night and day. That is during the Summer Solstice.. How long time do you have daylight tomorrow??

This is what happens around the Arctic Circle and above. This is a very special phenomenon that can be seen around the period of mid summer, both near the North and South poles. Even around the equator the length of the day may vary slightly, but it is hardly visible, I think.
