Caption: Midnight sun over Greenland. View looking toward the midnight sun over Mesters Vig, Greenland. The midnight sun is a phenomenon of summer in the polar regions. Due to the inclination of the Earth in its orbit, the sun never sets on days near the solstice (June 21 in the Arctic, December 21 in the Antarctic). Similarly, during local winter there are days when the sun never rises above the horizon.
