Polar Nights in Murmansk 2016

Yesterday, the people of Murmansk celebrated “The Day of the Sun”. This is the day when the Sun finally starts appearing in their skies for brief moments. In Murmansk, they have polar nights. Polar nights (also called winter days) are when you don’t see the Sun in the skies during the day. Not even for a moment, the Sun doesn’t rise above the horizon. The days look like twilight – on the horizon there is a dim light showing a hint of the Sun somewhere there, but the Sun never rises and then a normal night comes again. But February the First is the first day that the Sun appears, so it’s a big deal for the people living there. Let’s see a few photos showing how they cope with this and how their city typically looks in winter.
