The Midnight sun is the same as the regular sun that shines during the day. Just so you know it. Some tourist complanined to a criuseline company here in norway when they realized that fact.

So don't come here expecting two diferent suns :D

You would have to the polar circle or further north to experience midnight sun. Its a bit surreal, but no big deal. Either way, it will be bright enough to see.

The only problem you might have during the early morning hours is if you are in deep forest. I remember the night op to attack the SRP base during Berget 7...my unit ended up taking and holding an area to the left side of the road heading into the base and I remember it being quite difficult to see very far into the woods. Other than that though, if you're out in the open, visibility is not a problem. :wink:

Just checked the sunset/sunrise times:

On 29 June the sun sets at 2249 and it rises at 0300.
The time in between is just twilight.

When cloudy , it could be much darker.
Midnight sun is only an issue when its cloud free.

Probably ;)

So not Midnight Sun, but it won't be really dark either.
Had it been proper Midnight Sun, the sun would not set at all and stay above the horizon the entire night. You need to go a few more miles up north for this to be the case.

Regardless; bottom line is you won't really need any night vision equipment.
