Sunrise or Sunset??

Sunsetting. It was 1:30 in the afternoon. Sunset was at 2:50pm this day. The slope is losing apprx 15 minutes a day of daylight. November 24th will be the last sunrise/sunset of the year for Deadhorse 60 miles West of where I work. But 30 miles East of where I work, in a village called Kaktovik, last sunrise/sunset will be on November 25th. The day will last 49 minutes either way. The sun will not rise again until January 17th in Kaktovik and January 18th in Deadhorse. 54 DAYS!
Sunrise will be around 1230p and set a little before 1 o'clock. That's a 26 minute day. But then we'll start gaining daylight by 15 minutes each day. 54 days is one very long night!
