Taken today, half an hour past midnight, where the night lasts for only roughly 5 hours 10 minutes. And Oslo is only at 59° 56' North. I wish I would have gone further north.
I spended my midsummer day(night) here http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Finland,+Oulu&ie=UTF8&ll=65.676381,25.466309&spn=3.794114,15.556641&z=6&iwloc=addrFew hundred kilometers up and there is no sunset at all for a week or two. Now it was just little shimmer few hours on night

I went up here:http://tinyurl.com/5ch642Sitting at 3 o'clock on the terass in full daylight drinking some (expensive) beers. But still I wished we had gone up further (hammerfest, Nordkapp,...)or go in winter to see the northern light.
I'm currently located in Tampere, Finland for the next two months. I also currently like the short nights as I'm not in the mood for stargazing atm.
Alternatively, you could have come two months earlier. There is already huge difference in when the sun sets, I think it gets dark quite early now.
