Solar Eclipse at Midnight.......?

A Rare eclipse of the Sun will take place on June-1 2011.
The specialty is that it would take place at Midnight.

puzzled....???? an oxymoron...???

Northern Norway, Sweden and Finland on June 1st will witness this phenomenon.

During June (Northern Hemispheric Summer), the sun doesn't set in Arctic parts of the world, so a solar eclipse is theoretically possible at all hours of the day.
