The “Blue Hour”

In the north of Norway, we have an expression that describes the special light that occurs during the polar night season. “Blåtime”, directly translated “the blue hour”. Today it was breathtaking!

    1. There are no other names that I know of, but the pattern in the day is from coal black, to the blue hour, and then a lighter blue sky at around 11 am, back to dark blue, and on to black again. Thanks for asking.
