More Sun

The first sunrise of the year at Barrow is still two weeks away, but it is getting lighter around noon now, per the 114pm AST Sunday image at the right (this is close to solar noon at Barrow).

January 6th marks the end of the darkest month of the year (the 31 days centered on winter solstice).  Here in Fairbanks we've already gained almost 40 minutes of sunshine since Solstice.
