  • Casting a long shadow, as persons or objects in high latitudes.
  • n. One who casts a long shadow; specifically, an inhabitant of the arctic or the antarctic zone: so called because objects near the poles intercept the sun's rays at a very low angle, and therefore cast very long shadows. Compare antiscian.
