America's Northernmost Town Descends into 65 Days of Darkness After Sunday's Sunset
#1
Quote:Residents of America's northernmost town, Utqiaġvik, Alaska – formerly known as Barrow – will watch the sun dip below the horizon for the final time in 2018 Sunday afternoon, marking the beginning of "polar night," 65 consecutive days of near-darkness in this city north of the Arctic Circle.

Sunday's sunrise will occur at 12:40 p.m. AKST, with sunset happening just over an hour later at 1:44 p.m. AKST. The sun won't make an appearance again until the next sunrise Jan. 23 at 1:04 p.m. AKST. Alaska Standard Time is four hours behind Eastern Standard Time.
