ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Residents in the nation’s northernmost city are about ready for some sunglasses.

KTVA reports Barrow had its first sunrise this week in 68 days.

That happened Wednesday, when the sun came up at 1:28 p.m. and stayed out for 23 minutes. That was the first sunrise there since Nov. 18.

It’s all uphill from there. Barrow residents enjoyed 78 minutes of light Thursday.
