That is so weird!! Does this mean you have to have really heavy dark curtains in your bedroom so you aren't kept awake? And doesn't this confuse the birds no end? Do they get up and welcome the new day before you have actually gone to bed? And when does it start getting dark in the afternoon?

This is fascinating, thanks so much for these pictures. I remember being in St Petersburg one winter and there was daylight for about 5 hours - it started to get light around 10 am and the sun set around 3.00-ish. Very odd.

Nice progression images Colleen. It wasn't quite this dramatic in Whitehorse (I spent a summer up there in my wild youth) but still very cool.

CaptainCat, it does not get dark in the afternoon, the sun dips a bit below the horizon around 12am, the light dims, then a few hours later maybe around 4am, it starts it's path back up into the sky. The birds chirp nearly 20 hours a day. At least that was what things were like down south in Whitehorse.

Crazy! How do you fall asleep when it is so bright and sunny outside?

I don't know what's more amazing...the bright midnight sky or the fact that you actually stay up until midnight just to take these pictures for us!

Hwy Colleenie! Its Kell-eenie! I can say that down here in Prince Geroge its black outside right now and I LOVE it!!! I can't believe its that light up there again. Em is up at Diavik working 2 in and 2 out, so he's getting his Vitamin D!!! I am behind you though as I haven't planted flowers yet, it has been raining. Still snow in the mountains too, but no ice.
Thanks for your beautiful photos and staying up so late to take them :)

Love Kel - Miss you!
