What is kaamos or polar night?

Kaamos is a mystical period between December and January when the sun does not rise at all. Nonetheless it is light from 10 in the morning till 15 in the afternoon (the light period lasts around five hours). White snow makes this period much lighter. Kaamos is a time of phenomenal Arctic light performance, during which sky is blue when look North and red in the south.

Around 2PM every day so called “a blue moment” takes place, when everything including the sky and snow turns blue for 15 minutes. This unique nature phenomenon occurs only here in the Arctic area and you cannot encounter it anywhere else in the world.
