Northern Sunlight

A normal day in Utqiagvik, Alaska

Utqiagvik, the community formerly known as Barrow, now has more daylight and civil twilight than Miami, Florida on the Summer Solstice.

We are also closer, in the northern hemisphere, to the upcoming Summer Solstice, than we are to the previous Winter Solstice. That calls for a toast. Cheers.
