day-darkness

The photo above was taken at midday – the sun never made it over the horizon.  Today was the first day of the long night in Tromsø.  This is the beginning of the dark season, or the dark Winter, where we have no sun for two months.  Technically there are no more sun-days until mid-January but as you can see we still have light.  Even though we don’t get to see the sun its light still peeks over the horizon.  Each day the light gets lower and more blue until the middle of the dark season – around 22nd December.  When the season turns, the days will get lighter and then the sun will reappear.
