A country where night lasts for only 40 minutes, know the special thing about this city


Do you know where the night is for the shortest time? If you do not know, then let us tell you about this very beautiful city settled abroad.

Do you know that there is no dearth of places in the world where everything is not equal? There are many countries all over the world, which are famous all over the world due to their special features. Everyone likes to take a restful sleep after a day's run, and in such a situation, the sleep of eight to nine hours seems to be short. But do you know that there is a place in the world where there are only forty minutes of the night? You must be surprised to know this but it is true. So let's know about this city.

The town is the Hammerfest in Norway, where it is midnight. Here the sun hides at 12:43 in the night and rises at an interval of just forty minutes and the birds start chirping at around one and a half at night. It does not happen here for a day or two, but here it happens for two and a half months when the sun does not hide. Hence it is also known as 'Country of Midnight Sun'. The sun does not sink here for about 76 days between May and July. Explain that Norway falls inside the Arctic Circle.

Let me tell you that in the east, the Norwegian border is with Sweden, while speaking to the north, the border of this country is bordering Finland and Russia. Norway is not only famous for this reason, but it is known all over the world for its beautiful litigants, the beauty of it is made here. Let me tell you that this country is one of the richest countries in the world. People here are very aware of their health and like to eat healthily.

This happens due to scientific and astronomical reasons

The Sun is stationary in space and the Earth completes one orbit in 365 days on its orbit. Also, she completes one round on her axis i.e. twenty-four hours. Days and nights occur due to the same rotation of the Earth's sun. At the same time, the duration of day and night is not always equal. Sometimes the days are big and the nights are short, sometimes the days are short and the nights become big. It is caused by the tilt of the Earth's axis. Explain that there is no real axis of the earth, when the earth rotates, one to the north and the other to the south, two points are formed which, if joined by a straight line, form an axis. The Earth rotates at an angle of 66 degrees from its plane, due to which its axis is tilted to twenty-three degrees instead of straight. Due to the tilt of the axis, day and night are big and small. Twenty-one June and twenty-two December are two such dates when the sunlight does not spread in equal parts in the earth due to the tilt of the earth's axis. So there is a difference between the times of day and night.

Midnight sun in Norway is also a situation like a twenty-one June. At this time, the entire part of the earth from 66 degrees north latitude to 90 degrees north latitude remains under sunlight. This means that the day is longer and the night is shorter. This is why this strange phenomenon occurs in Norway.
