The Different Seasons

SEASON
OVERVIEW

Summer (June-August)

24 hours sunlight, the midnight sun at its best

 

Autumn (September-October)

from the 23th of August the days get shorter again

 

Dark Season (November-mid January)

for more than two months we have absolutely no natural light at all

Winter (Mid January-May)

even up here next to the North pole we are getting kind of a normal day-, night- rhythm. And the sun comes back. During the winter the temperature can drop down to under -20 degrees Celsius.

Spring (May)

while the ice is melting, the midnight sun comes up again and summer season is coming closer and closer
