Amazing 5-Day Antarctica Timelapse Where the Sun Never Sets
Robert Schwarz filmed this amazing 5-day timelapse in Antarctica where there are just two seasons: summer and winter. Antarctica has six months of daylight in its summer and six months of darkness in its winter.
The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months in places north of the Arctic Circle or south of the Antarctic Circle, when the Sun remains visible at the local midnight. Around the summer solstice (approximately 21 June in the Northern Hemisphere and 23 December in the Southern Hemisphere), in certain areas the Sun does not set below the horizon within a 24-hour period. The number of days per year with potential midnight sun increases the closer one goes towards either pole. [source]
The timelapse above by Schwarz, was filmed over the course of 5 days from March 8th – 13th, 2017.
