"Potentially deadly"


How much "deadly" could be some 1/2 cm spiders that, even if we eat them, would probably be killed by our stomachs? wacko

They won't stay that small forever, and if they get into your house and grow big they could be a problem. They're probably extremely venomous spiders, hence the "deadly" thing.

well even then the sun does set, but the glow is still visible so you can see just fine.

Huh?

According to yr.no, the sun is up between 09:19 and 14:30 in Utsjoki today. The polar night doesn't arrive in Utsjoki until the last week of November.

I would love to experience that.

In northern Scandinavia it gets reasonably bright anyway. There's still civil twilight for many hours and a significant difference between day and night. The midnight sun messes up your body clock more. While the midnight light is nice in spring, the return of the nights is a relief in late summer.

It's worse if there's not even nautical twilight, and aurora is as visible at noon as at midnight. But you need to get beyond 78 degrees latitude for that. To escape astronomical twilight you need to get above 84 degrees, which is beyond regular transport means. There are daily flights to 78N, though, even in mid winter, so that's within an abroad holiday budget for Europeans or overseas budget for the rest.

I've been up there in December many times, but one year I spent some days in a cabin without electricity just before Christmas. After a couple of days you begin to wish for a few minutes or at least a few seconds of daylight to do stuff that requires some light. Like, if you need to do some work or if you lose something, a paraffin lamp or a small flashlight is of limited use. You feel disabled. Things that would take seconds in daylight could take an hour in darkness. And the thought that it will be like that for a couple of months is somewhat annoying.

Oh, so meanwhile in Finland time warped. smile

Today, the sun sets for the last time just below 74N.

It would be really cool to see a timelapse from the south pole in mid winter running over many days of continuous clear weather.
