The Arctic Tern is a seabird of the tern family Sternidae. This bird has a circumpolar distribution breeding abundantly in arctic and sub-arctic regions of Europe, Asia and North America as far south as Brittany and Massachusetts. This species is strongly migratory, wintering in the Antarctic. This 19,000 km (12,000 mile) journey ensures that this bird sees more daylight than any other creature on the planet. [...] The average Arctic Tern in its life will travel a distance equal to going to the moon and back.
