Midnight in Luleå

Just back from Sweden. Visited my aunt Kerstin in Luleå. At 00:14 on 16th June I took a photo of the house where my mother, Kerstin, and my other uncles and aunts were brought up. 

You don’t get the true midnight sun, as Luleå is about 70 miles south of the Arctic Circle, but the photo gives a fair impression of how light it is there at midnight at midsummer. For complaints and my comment on these complaints see Love your home

A note on the time of the photo. At 00:14, solar time would have been about 23:45.  This is only an approxmation and does not take account of the equation of time, a concept which I don't yet understand.
