During winter it experiences about 30 consecutive days of total darkness, thanks to what’s called the Noon-Moon. The sun finally returns in January, and everyone takes note.

Almost two hours of daylight!

This time of year brings the reverse: the Midnight Sun. Inuvik and other parts of the Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut are enjoying days and nights without darkness. Inuvik will have 56 consecutive days of sunlight.

People play baseball late at night too, because why not?

Baseball under the midnight sun is great, except that I can’t play baseball #struckout #yzf
