The Sun Just Set For The Last Time In 2017 For This One Alaska Town

It sounds extreme because it is! Utqiagvik, the town formerly named Barrow, is the northernmost inhabited place in the U.S. This city has a stark beauty all its own. The Arctic is a place of extremes and two days in a row never have the same amount of sun. This can throw many people off who visit but, for those who live here, it makes the day length everywhere else feel just a little boring.

See the U.S. Naval Observatory Sunrise table for Utqiagvik here.
