If you want to stay awake at night, a city in the US state of Alaska
It will definitely be liked. The sun set for the last time this year on November 18 in the Utqiagvik region of northern Alaska, formerly known as Barrow. In this town of 4,000 people, the sun rose at 12:42 p.m. on November 18 and set just 59 minutes later at 1:41 p.m. Now the city will be covered by darkness for 65 days, or they say that it is impossible to see the sunrise for more than 2 months. The 65-day night is also called the polar night. The term polar night is used for places where the sun does not rise for more than 24 hours. The northern third of Alaska lies above the Arctic Circle, and therefore the Earth tilts slightly on its axis each year at these times. As a result, the sun does not rise for weeks or even months in different regions of the Arctic during winter. In the Northern Hemisphere, the length of the day shortens from the end of June and the duration of sunset decreases in all countries, but the effect is greater in the northern regions. The length of the day there is rapidly shortening in late September, just like in this town in Alaska. It’s not the only town in Alaska to experience polar night, but it’s the northernmost and certainly the first. Well, there will be some sunlight during this time, but it won’t be like a normal sunset or sunrise. Residents will now have to wait until January 23, 2023 to witness the sunrise. The region experiences long night months as well as sunlight in summer. From May to August there is no darkness at night, but the sun is always visible in the sky, which is called the Midnight Sun. For example, in 2022, the sun did not set for 83 days, but despite 24 hours of daylight, there is no noticeable decrease in cold weather.
