Could You go without Sunlight for 2 straight months?

Source: 24/7 News

(Barrow, AK)  --  Some Alaska residents will be without sunlight for the next two months.  

Sunday was the shortest day of the year in Utqiagvik, formerly known as Barrow, with the sun rising at 12:30 p.m. and setting at 1:43.  

Daylight isn't expected until January 23rd.  

The city is north of the Arctic Circle and anywhere north of the circle experiences "polar night" every fall through winter.  

There is a flip side to "polar night" though, as the same area experiences "midnight sun" during the summer months where the sun never sets below the horizon for two months.
