It's December — that means days are getting shorter. The sun tries to poke through a dark cloud as it rises in the east over an icy bay in Iqaluit. The sun is going to be up for 4 hours, 53 minutes and 30 seconds on Dec. 5 according to the sunrise and sunset calendar on timeanddate.com. On the winter solstice, Dec. 21, the sun will rise in Iqaluit at 9:22 a.m. and set at 1:42 p.m. — a whole 4 hours and 20 minutes of sun. In other places in Nunavut such as Grise Fiord, Arctic Bay, Pond Inlet and Igloolik, there will be no sun for all of December. (PHOTO BY DAVID MURPHY)
