This northern community just saw its last sunset of the decade

On Monday, a community 500 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle witnessed its last sunset of the decade.

Yes, of the decade.

Communities north of the Arctic Circle are beginning their annual plunge into darkness, and this year is no exception.

As we close this chapter on another decade, this can be classified as the last sunset of the decade, with the sun peeking above the horizon once again on January 23, 2020...

Several regions in Canada have already said goodbye to the sun for the decade, including Eureka, Grise Fiord, and recently Pond Inlet joining the club last week.

Iqaluit, you won't experience the prolonged darkness like those small communities north of the Arctic Circle, but on December 21, you'll only see the sun for just over four hours.

As for the expected winter conditions, it's looking more likely that regions near Hudson Bay will have a cooler winter, especially when compared with previous winters in northern Canada.
