Tonight is the longest night of the year and we're in the midst of a month of 24-hour "darkness" up here in the Arctic.  Which is a bit misleading, because the darkness isn't complete.  For about 4-5 hours in the middle of the day, we get quite a bit of light, as the sun is just below the horizon.  Of course, it is dark the rest of the time, but then we get to enjoy the moon and stars in the daytime.  :) 

So on the shortest day of the year, I took the following pictures around 2 pm.  Enjoy!
