MULTIMEDIA LESSON #007
Lesson Title: The Midnight Sun
Content: Two videos showing how, at extreme latitudes, the Midnight Sun and the Noon Darkness can occur. Both are caused by the tilt of Earth's rotation axis with respect to the plane of its orbit around the Sun. Part 2 includes an animation of the rotating Earth explaining both phenomena, and a time-lapse photo of the Midnight Sun over Antarctica.
Part 1: The view from Barrow Alaska (RT = 3:51)
