Did You Know {2} ~ The Black Sun, Norway

The Black Sun (Sort Sol in Danish) is one of the most magnificent natural phenomena in Denmark that’s worth seeing at least once. Thousands of visitors from all over the world travel to the Scandinavian country to watch the sunset being blocked by massive flocks of birds, as for a few minutes Denmark’s sky resembles a painting.

Every year in spring and autumn, up to one million starlings migrate from Norway, Sweden and Finland, and on their way to France, Britain, Belgium and the Netherlands they create one of the most unique natural phenomena in Denmark.

The Black Sun, or ‘Sort Sol’ as the Danes it call it, occurs in southwestern Jutland in Denmark during autumn from August until the end of October, and in spring from the middle of March to the middle of April – when the starlings returning to the north make a stop at Wadden Sea National Park’s marshlands to rest and find food.

  1. There’s a musical group I love called Coil who uses the black sun symbol.
    But, as I mentioned, my family crest tree is linked to the Normandy Viking invasion of England. I like the Black Sun symbol and it’s meaning and thought of using it for a ring design or something.. but recent white supremacists use it because they ruin everything for everyone.

    But.. Normandy/France to England to Scotland-Ireland to the United States.
