There are countries  (northern) on the earth which the sun is shining on the sky but it seems and feels like it is still night also clock shows that it is night. Or it seems and feels like morning but the sun doesnt appear. Is there any research that if there are layers on the earth which transforms sun light into night or day?

Are you referring to the polar night and day phenomenons?    This occurs due to the Earth's axial tilt and occurs around the solstices.

"We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos, yet other beings with wider, stronger, or different range of senses might not only see very differently the things we see, but might see and study whole worlds of matter, energy, and life which lie close at hand yet can never be detected with the senses we have." - H.P. Lovecraft, "From Beyond" Published 1934

The simple answer to your question is yes.

I have to be honest, I really can't work out what it is you are trying to say.

Certainly food for thought...

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

Even then it's not quite like night. The solar corona becomes visible and gives the sky an eerie pink colour. It's more like dawn or dusk than night.

It's called shift work sometimes I'm walking around working and the clock says it's night and then I go to bed and it is like all bright and stuff like it's day. yes there has been a lot of research in this area and everybody I talked to said it sucks.

Oh, picky, picky, picky... :D

Well how about this..when there is a volcanic eruption and there is ash fall..that can turn day into night. I recall seeing that on the news at one time.

To this part (in Bold) the answer is NO.

Extreme Northern and Southern Latitudes DO experience virtually (but not quite) 6 months of daylight and 6 Months of darkness (but not at the same time :-* ) so you would indeed think that it was bedtime when in fact the Sun is still in the sky.

For reference, at the equator, day and night are approximately the same (a few minutes added for refraction) which sounds pretty good but imagine the sun rising at 6am and going down at 6pm before you have organised the Barbecue!!.

I would just like to add that for where I live in Spain sunrise today (19 July 2013) is 07:13, sunset at 21:34, but where I work in Germany Sunrise is: 05:08 and sunset is 21:17. and to be honest it messes with my biological functions in the morning :blush:

I suggest you google "Land of the Midnight Sun" which will describe in detail the answer that you are looking for.
