What I did
Arctic Circle at 66 degrees north and 33 minutes.
This morning at 7:15 we crossed the Arctic Circle. This means we were at the northern-most latitude at which the sun can be seen 24 hours a day, or where night will last all day in the winter. We have gotten a good dose of darkness already. It is possible to photograph a sunrise at 8:30 which is nice because then one doesn't have to get up too early. However, this also means that it gets dark very early in the afternoon. Below are some photos showing how quickly the light faded after Trondheim.
