Here's the iPhone compass reading from the nearly highest point on our trip around Svalbard last week. Highest was 80º 20'. Virtually no satellites cover the arctic -- you see "No Service."
We are now at home where the sun actually sets and it gets dark for several hours a night. We hadn't see a totally dark sky for 2 weeks, until last night! I'll be posting more images and descriptions of our fascinating visit with polar bears, colonies of nesting birds, reindeer, walks on the tundra, and more.
