What months are dark in Alaska?



  1. 0 Votes

    Contrary to popular belief, the “darkness” that Alaska experiences does not occur in all of the state. During the winter months above the Arctic Circle, nighttime can last for months. Barrow, in the northern part of Alaska, experiences a two-month period of darkness. In the summer, however, Barrow has an 85-day period of continuous sunlight. Though Alaska may have quite a strange distribution of light and dark stages, the state has the same hours of sunlight and darkness – during March and September – as the rest of the world.
