Antarctica can have very short days or very short nights. As discussed elsewhere on this site, finding the right time to pray can be difficult. Is it permissible to visit places like this?

    But he was going for a devar mitzva (I guess that's what you'd call that). So there isn't a proof that you could go for devar reshus.
