What the Midnight Sun actually looks like from these parts.

This video was apparently shot between midnight and 10am on June 21st, from Destruction Bay looking out over Kluane Lake, an Alaska Highway community about a three-hour drive west of Whitehorse.

Since we're slightly below 66° 33′, you'll see that the sun does set, but it never gets darker than a southern dusk. The longest days last for a couple of weeks on either side of the summer solstice.

    That's awesome - thanks for sharing! We often get questions about this!

    There'll be at least one of my Ontario friends that will be surprised to see trees. "I thought it was all permafrost and tundra up there."
