In spring, the Antarctic sun lays low in the sky over the Southern Ocean. The sea ice is breaking up with the arrival of warmer temperatures. At this time of year in Antarctica the sun never really sets so there is about 23 hours of daylight and 1 hour of twilight. It makes it difficult to sleep, but who would want to with views like this?

  1. Hi Ryan, would you be willing to post a Youtube video (and send me the link) regarding the midnight sun over Antarctica? There are thousands of videos on Youtube saying it has never been photographed. These people are nuts, but getting lots of attention, some millions of hits.
