The week ended bright after a long period of darkness, with the sun rising in Utqiagvik, the northernmost community in the US, for the first time in 66 days.

Can you imagine that? The sun just rose in Utqiagvik, Alaska (formerly Barrow) for the first time in over 2 months!

But how many suns do they have in Alaska? Picture via Facebook

The sun rose at 1:16 p.m. and set again around 2 p.m. local time on Friday, January 22, 2021.

It’s the first sunrise since Nov. 18, 2020 when the city was clasped in the grips of “polar night.”

Soon on May 11th, the sun will be up all day.

Crazy!

  1. That’s good. Some people suffer from depression and drink too much when it is dark all the time.

    Time to go fishing and hunting. Go outside and get a healthy dose of vitamin D.
