Geocache Description:

Välkommen till midnattsolens land.

Welcome to the land of the midnight sun.

Norra polcirkeln är ett populärt turistmål och passerar igenom Alaska, Kanada, Grönland, Norge, Sverige, Finland, Ryssland och Sibirien.
Norr om denna linje syns midnattssolen på midsommar, medan det vid midvintern är mörkt dygnet runt. Detta beror på jordaxelns lutning.
Polcirklarna ändrar sin position (för närvarande flyttar den sig 14,4 meter per år), beroende på jordaxelns lutning i förhållande till solen.
Cachen, som är en 35 mm svart filmburk med grått lock, ligger vid en av flera rastplatser där en större väg korsar polcirkeln.

The northern arctic circle is a popular tourist attraction. It crosses Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia and Siberia.
North of this line the midnight sun can be seen during midsummer time, but during midwinter the sun doesn't shine at all. All because of the angle of the earth axis.
The arctic circle moves for each year (presently it moves itself 14,4 meters/year), because of the earth axis angle towards the sun.
The cache is a 35 mm black film canister with a grey lid. It is placed at one of several halting places where a bigger road crosses the arctic circle.

Lycka till / Good Luck!
