Interesting to know that solar eclipse happens at midnight.





The eclipse takes place around midnight local time (daylight saving time) and can be viewed from the Norwegian counties of Møre og Romsdal, Trøndelag, Nordland, Troms, Finnmark as well as Spitsbergen. Northern Norway and Spitsbergen will enjoy the best view. This will be the first midnight Sun eclipse in Norway since 2000 and the largest one since 1985. Scandinavians must wait until 2084 to have a larger eclipse of the midnight Sun. Less information...

It might sound like a contradiction to have a solar eclipse in the middle of the night. But this is what will happen in northern Norway, Sweden and Finland on June 1. Almost 60 % of the Sun will be hidden by the Moon around midnight local time. A midnight Sun eclipse can only occur close to the poles and only during summer when the Sun never sets.

Thank you, I was very confused on how you could have a midnight solar eclipse.

is it more than a coincidence that you make thread about a midnight sun eclipse and your name is midnight sun?

From ancient times even til today, an eclipse can be a very bad omen to the country that sees it's effect.
