This Alaska town won't see the sun for more than 2 months

An Alaskan town has said goodbye to daylight for the next two months.

(CNN) — An Alaskan town has said goodbye to daylight for the next two months.

The sun rose and set in Utqiagvik, Alaska, formerly known as Barrow, for the last time for on Thursday for a period of over 60 days.

The small town located north of the Arctic Circle has entered its annual phase of darkness, known as polar night.

"Polar night is a normal phenomenon that happens every winter for Barrow (Utqiagvik), and any other towns inside the Arctic circle," said CNN meteorologist Allison Chinchar.

Most daytime hours will go through periods known as civil twilight, said Chinchar.

The town is not the only one in Alaska to experience this phenomenon, but it is the first on the polar night location list because of how far north it is.

If the life of a night owl is unappealing for the people of Utqiagvik, they can always look toward the summer when the opposite occurrence, known as a midnight sun or polar day, causes 24 hours of daylight.
