How much light is there on November 10, 2010?

I get a lot of questions about light in Alaska. "Isn't it dark all winter?" or "Is that because there is always so much darkness?" or "How do you see to walk to the bathroom?"

I started a little project today that I hope to continue every few days through the winter. I really don't like the location of my pictures; tomorrow I might try this again, looking in a different direction from the building. The trees and building shadows obscure the light a bit. But either way, you get the idea.

8:45 a.m.

9:45 a.m.

11:00 a.m.

12:15 p.m.

2:30 p.m.

3:45 p.m.

4:20 p.m.

7 hours +/- of good light today? Something like that.
