    How many hours of daylight does each city get?

    A:

    Duration of daylight hours varies both by geographic location and season; for example, Key Largo, Florida, one of the southernmost cities in the U.S., can get up to 13 hours and 40 minutes of daylight in June and 10 hours and 37 minutes in December, while Barrow, Alaska, one of the northernmost cities in the U.S., experiences extremes of absolutely no daylight during winter months and 24 hours of sunlight in summer. The amount of sunlight a city receives depends more on latitude than longitude, with locales in the Arctic Circle, including Tromso, Norway and Murmansk, Russia experiencing seasonal extremes of daylight availability, while those along the Equator, including Quito, Ecuador and Nairobi, Kenya, have predictably even daylight hours year-round.
