Kaamos. The Polar Night.

The Polar Night started in the northern parts of Finland, north from the Arctic Circle. The sun is below the horizon until 16.1.2017, when the sun will rise for the first time above the horizon. The Finnish word for this dark period is kaamos, pronounced in English [‘ka:mos].
