    I would like to visit there when there`s very little sun! :D
    It`d still be disorienting, but I wouldn`t have as much trouble sleeping, I don`t think. :<

    Also, the music reminds me of the Astral Observatory theme from Majora`s Mask a little. Which is kinda ironic, when you think about it. .___.

    i was born and raised in Yellowknife, NWT (google it) and its not necessarily like this but pretty damn close. the most unfortunate thing about the sun being up all the time is that you dont shut down youre drinking until 6 am.......and then realize you have to work at 7.

    I lived beyond the Arctic Circle, and the best part was around September, when the one side of the sky was night time with a full moon. The sky on the horizon was nightime black, which then gradually changed through all the shades of blue up to the high point in the sky.

    The other side of the sky was in in perpetual sunset, and all the shades of sunset would meet to the high point of the sky where the night sky met.

    Hard to describe, but absolutely amazing!

    I work on the North Slope in Alaska, and it`s like that right now. Gets slightly dim about 3am when the sun barely touches the horizon, then it`s up again. It`s *incredibly* easy to lose track of time and sleep if you aren`t used to it.

    Yep, winter is a looong long night there and that summer day is sweet if not so great for insomniacs.. It`s like you have two seasons in the year and between them are one day and one night. The effect is not so strong here about 500km south of the Arctic Circle but it has still the same effect to the soul.

    ...meaning further north than the Arctic Circle itself, which is around 66 degrees North. Living beyond this implies living even closer to the North Pole than that of the Arctic Circle.

    He meant that there wouldn`t be any sun. So when it`s winter time, it`ll be dark all the time and you`re kinda screwed.
