Nome is still ca. 100 miles south of the Arctic circle. On the shortest day of the year we have ca. 3 1/2 hours between sunrise and sunset, but another 1 1/2 hours of daylight before and after the sun is up. So a total of ca. 6 hours even on the shortest day. Then in summer...no darkness at all from ca. late May to late JulyIs it dark there all the time now?
