3. Midnight on midsummer's day at one of the Poles, North Pole probably. sun

Re: THURSDAY QUIZ 23 May 2019

Thanks guys.

Glad you all enjoyed it.

I should have pointed out that @viridis not only won on his go at the Thursday Quiz, but was up against the most members to take part in the quiz and was up against @Cleoriff who has, so far, won the most Thursday Quizzes.

 

If anyone wants to suggest general subjects [not specific topics] for future Thursday Quizzes, please feel free to post and I`ll look out suitable questions.
