Sun festival in Longyearbyen

On the latitude of Longyearbyen, the sun is theoretically since approximately 20 February above the horizon again, at least for some mid-day minutes. But from Longyearbyen, the sun will not appear above the mountains before 08 March, an event that is traditionally given a warm welcome in shape of various cultural and social happenings from 08 to 14 March, including a number of lectures, presentations and concerts.

The last and the first sunrays of the year are a major event anywhere in the Arctic.
