We’re well south of Barrow, but when the sun rises there we know the Earth is really tilting more toward the sun. A video was taken by the FAA last Sunday, and to quote from the Weather Service Facebook page:

“Residents of Barrow, Alaska watched the sun climb above the horizon for the first time in 65 days, after it set on November 18, 2012. The sun skirted along the southern horizon for about 43 minutes today. Tomorrow it will remain above the horizon for 1 hour and 27 minutes. The amount of sunlight will rapidly increase in Barrow until May 10th, at which point the sun will remain above the horizon for 24 hours a day for nearly 3 months.”

I can’t seem to get the video to show on the page, but click here and you can see the Barrow sunrise.
