Virtual Tour - Life at the South Pole: Sun Links


When you're at the Pole, the Sun doesn't rise and set every day. It rises at one equinox and sets at the other, giving 6 months of day and 6 months of night. When living under these conditions, you can well imagine that sunlight (or the lack thereof) is a pretty big deal!

A bit of background

On the previous page, we've just collected a few pictures pertaining to sunlight. For more information about the path of the Sun (and the Earth's revolution, rotation, and tilt), here are several resources. All of these links take you out of the CARA Virtual Tour.
