I prefer the phrase, “Sun does not set.” #talkeetna #alaska
While this photo looks like a sunset, it was actually a sunrise. I took it in Virginia Beach on April 17, 2017.
If you ever wondered about winter in Alaska, sunrise in Talkeetna starts at 10:07am today (December 5th) and sets at 3:37pm. Talkeetna is actually very low in Alaska, latitude-wise. Meanwhile in Utqiaġvik (formerly known as Barrow), the Sun neither rises nor sets today.
Tomorrow (August 15th) is the last day in 2018 that the Sun will set after 10pm in Talkeetna, Alaska.
This photo looks like a sunset to me, but it’s from a sunrise in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
And to all a good night ... a photo of a sunset over the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado, October 4, 2012.
After 84 days, the Sun finally set in Barrow, Alaska (now known as Utqiaġvik) on August 2, 2017.
