America: 66 days after sunrise in Alaska; The sun only came out for an hour

The sun rose 66 days later on Friday in Utqiagvik, the US state of Alaska, and for an hour only. The sun appeared in this region of the polar region on 18 November last year. People celebrated that day. There was sunrise on Friday at 1:16 pm (Saturday in India at 3:45 am). However, an only light red light appeared during this time. Meanwhile, people came out to roam in the sun and expressed happiness by performing traditional dances. The city of Utqiagvik, with a population of 4400, is mostly inhabited by Mexicans. 58-year-old Mr. Cragg, who lives here, says – ‘The sun does not rise for 66 days does not mean that darkness remains here. This means that the sun comes out, but its light does not reach here. This is an interesting view of nature. We have been watching this for years. Now we are used to it. Work is affected during polar light. But it also tries to continue.
During this time, most of the city lives in power. People live in homes. Spend time together, watch movies, listen to songs and read books. The Christmas festival is the most thrilling among the 66 days. On that day, people gather and celebrate Christmas. People perform traditional Eskimo dance after long nights are over. Schools open, where many ceremonies are performed. However, during these 66 days, snow accumulates up to 10-15 feet. It also has to face many troubles. Mr. Cragg explains- ‘After the Polar night is over, there is sunlight, people see it as a positive light.’
