The sun is up for the next 85 days in the 'land of the midnight sun'
If you have plans to visit Alaska in the next few months, be sure to bring some blackout shades for your bedroom.
The sun will not fall below the horizon for the next 85 days in Barrow, Alaska. The sun rose this morning at 2:54 a.m. local time and will not set again until 1:56 a.m. on August 2.
Until then, the sun will be visible above the horizon at all hours of the day.
The tweet above shows that the opposite occurs from mid-November to mid-January, when the sun is not seen above the horizon in Barrow.
