Sometimes the stars make fun of logic and reason. Some episodes that the universe gives us, many times, seem to be taken from a science and fiction movie by Steven Spielberg or a book by Jules Verne. An example of this has happened with Barrow, an American city located in the state of Alaska who lives in her own flesh one of those stories amazing.

The inhabitants of Barrow saw the Sun after 167 days of midnight. But, if this phenomenon seems incredible to you, the almost 4,500 inhabitants of the place are now making preparations to be without night for 83 dayssaid the meteorologist Ed Piotrowski.
This incredible story happens due to a matter of inclination from the earth. When it is winter, in this city the planet tilts 23.5 degrees and does not receive sunlight in the northern hemisphere. For that reason, in November, December and January there is no light and during May, June and July there is sun almost the entire day.

Based on the opinions collected from those who live in Utqiaġvik, as Barrow is also known, they adore and enjoy more the days when the Sun rises. However, they cannot take advantage of it with the tranquility that it deserves, because they know that it is very limited time they can use to do activities that are only enjoyable in daylight.
“In more than 10 years in Alaska not once have I heard a native say they don’t like long days. It’s not uncommon to hear a lawnmower running or kids playing outside at 11 PM.” Brian Brettschneider for weather.com.

One of the great inconveniences that the inhabitants of Barrow have to deal with, in the middle of the days of sunlight, is to find a way to keep their rooms dark at dawn. Only then can they rest well.
“I had problems with the transition seasons, as you would gain or lose 6-8 minutes of light a day depending on whether it was spring or fall. This equates to about an hour a week, and I’m just having trouble adjusting.” Mary Butwin, a former University of Alaska-Fairbanks student. When she has to live with daylight for 24 hours, covering the windows with newspaper and blankets becomes her great solution for the inhabitants of this already famous city.
