First sunset returning to Barrow tonight

In Barrow, the sun has been above the horizon since May 10th, but the days of the midnight sun are almost over. Early Friday morning, residents will experience the first sunset in almost three months. Officially the sun will set at 1:49 a.m. and rise again at 3:19 a.m. Commentator Earl Finkler of Barrow has been trying to stay up later to fully appreciate the midnight sun, while it’s still around.
