To think that averaging the daylight and twilight out over a year, Alaska sees more light than the rest of the continent.

I can say when I spent a short amount of time on the north slope of alaska this summer, I got to witness the midnight sun firsthand. Very weird when I woke at 2 or 3am to use the bathroom and the sun was blasting high in the sky like it does back home in July. The native teenage kids were bombing around on their 4 wheelers and dirt bikes all night. I had a chance to talk to them and they said its the only time of the year when they can pretty much do whatever without worrying about the weather.

I'd probably take advantage of all the daylight in the short Alaska. summer too!
