24 hours of sun

The 24 hours of sunlight is now here in Igloolik. I couldn't fall asleep so I decided to walk outside and snap a picture. It was bright here all day and the sky was very clear. This picture is behind the government houses. On the left is cemetery hill and you might be able to see a silhouette of a cross or an inukshuk on the top of the hill. As you can see, the sun never goes down anymore. This is as low as it gets as it skates across the horizon for a couple of hours before heading back into the sky.

This picture was taken Sunday, May 24th at midnight.
