The Sun of Acapulco Online
With the high temperatures that have occurred in the country many times we would like only the night to exist and although it sounds impossible, in some areas near the North Pole it happens!
320 miles above the Arctic Circle, Utqiagvik is located in Alaska , a city located in the north of the United States, where Sunday began the period of constant darkness of 65 days.
In the city, formerly called Barrow, its nearly 4 thousand residents saw only one hour and four minutes of sunlight last Sunday.
This is due to the phenomenon known as the “polar night”, because it is so named because the sun does not reach beyond the horizon. Other places where the polar night is experienced is Svalbard, Norway , the archipelago where there are more polar bears than people.
From Sunday, after sunset at 13:44, local time, citizens will not see the sun again until January 23, 2019 at 13:04 in the afternoon.
Utqiagvik is located 320 miles above the Arctic Circle, north of which all latitudes experience a part of the polar night.
