The night of May 19 in Norilsk is the last one until the end of summer

May 19, 2020

The night of May 18-19 in Norilsk will be very short. The solar disk will go beyond the horizon after the midnight and will return in 34 minutes. After this, the luminary will embark on a long shift - a polar day will begin in Norilsk.

Tired of the polar night, the Norilsk people get a full amount of sunlight in summer – of course, subject to a clear sky, which does not often happen in the polar city. So, in this area, a part of the solar disk appears above the horizon in mid-January. Starting with half an hour, the duration of a sunny day gradually increases. At the end of March, the time of twilight and white nights begins in Norilsk.

The polar day in the city lasts until July 25. Then everything develops in the opposite order: twilight and white nights, then the change of day and night, then the polar night. This is one of the climatic sights of the Arctic.
