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!
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.
