Why is there less sunlight while flying over Greenland or near arctic circle?

Is it because of this time of the year that even when I set the time as noon there is less sunlight.I always wanted to see the nice landscape on the sim

Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice is the culprit ;)

Take a look at the picture below which references hours of sunlight from pole to pole.

It’s because when you at the centre of the North Pole the day is shorter because the sun meets night my explanation is rubbish but google it.
