Midnight Sun: Iceland

Watch the phenomenon of midnight sun, when the sun shines for 24 hours in the summer.
Shot by Joe Capra, this film is a time lapse of Iceland’s landscape bathed in the golden light from the sun that never fully sets during the summer. With only a car and his equipment, Capra traveled the country for 17 days to capture the wonder of this natural occurrence.

In the summer, areas north of the Arctic Circle and south of Antarctica experience midnight sun. Since the areas are located near the earth’s poles, the sun reaches sunset but stays at the horizon without fully disappearing. At the poles, it can stay above the horizon for up to six months at a time.
