During summer, you will not be able to enjoy the stars in Alaska because the sun just doesn’t set. It means there’s no night at all during summertime. At first, it may be a bit unusual and confusing for those who aren't familiar with Polar Day, but it’s something very special that everyone should witness at least once. Late evenings during Polar Day are considered very beautiful ​b​ecause they appear as an endless sunset.
