Step 1

When Sun is seen at mid-night also, it is known as midnight Sun. In midnight Sun case, sun never sets or it can be say that Sun never lies below the horizon of the observer. It happens because rotational plane of Earth is tilted with an angle of 23.5 degrees with respect to its revolution plane.

Step 2

The location of any place on the Earth is described by the coordinates such as latitude and longitudes. Arctic and Antarctic circle are imaginary circles on the Earth with latitude coordinates 66.50 N and 66....
