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.
