    Sunrise 4:36am

    We used to stay up all night then go water-skiing at 4am. The water would be still as glass and mist would be coming off the water. It was spectacular.

    I was in Stockholm Sweden a few weeks ago.
    Stockholm
    Sunrise 3:31am
    Sunset 10:09pm

    The staff of my hotel kindly put me in a basement room so I wouldn't be disturbed by the early mornings but my colleague was up on the third floor and the sun was shining into his room by 4:30am. It was also strange walking around downtown at 9pm with it light out and everything closed.
