When the sun poked above the horizon here early Wednesday, it marked the beginning of about three months of round-the-clock daylight.

Sunset Wednesday was at 2:06 a.m. (4:06 a.m. MDT), followed 34 minutes later by sunrise, said Mike Vise, acting manager of the U.S. Weather Service station here. The sun will not set again until 2:19 a.m. Aug. 2, he said.Even with the sun briefly dipping below the horizon each day recently, it virtually has been light all the time. But lifetime resident Marie Adams said the light does not bother residents of the tiny community. "It is exciting when the sun comes back up," she said.
