Utqiagvik enters sunny months
The sun is back in full force on the North Slope as summer fast approaches.
The sun rose in Utqiaġvik at 2:54 a.m. on May 10 and will not set again until 1:56 a.m. on Aug. 2. The city will see a full 24 hours of daylight for 85 days.
As with every year, while the day passed fairly quietly in Utqiaġvik itself, observers from outside the town and the state took notice of the 'midnight sun' phenomenon that has captured the imaginations of people far and wide.
If the movies are to be believed, at least with the sun out the vampires will stay hidden until the winter months, when the days of darkness return.
