How long is there daylight in alaska?

The amount of daylight in Alaska depends on the time of year, as well as the location within the state. At the very top of Alaska, in Barrow, there is a period in winter that lasts two months where there is no daylight at all, the sun doesn't rise. Once you are south of the Arctic Circle there is always at least a little daylight. Of course in the summer the opposite effect takes place above the Arctic Circle, Barrow gets sunlight for 85 straight days! Locations south of the Circle get some night time.
