6 Months Daylight in Alaska?


There is a popular belief that there are 6 months of daylight in Alaska. Much as this may be true to a certain extent, It is important to understand that Alaska is a very large state with so many cities. Therefore there are different hours of sunlight in different cities. This due to the fact that Alaska is in the North Pole and the earth is tilted. Fairbanks is one of the places where there are 6 months of darkness and other 6 months of sunlight.
