When the Sun Deserts the North Country-Fairbanks at Noon in December Shop windows and street lights shine brightly, for midwinter days are almost entirely without sunlight. The moon, the aurora borealis, and starlight on the snow partly make up for Old Sol's absence. In midsummer he rides the sky without ceasing, and night disappears entirely. On June 21every year Fairbanks stages a midnight baseball game (page 296). For two or three weeks at this season newspapers may be read outdoors at any hour of night.
