The equator gets 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness each day throughout the year.
12. The equator gets 12 hours of daylight every day of the year.
At either pole, there are several weeks each year that the sun never rises, and several weeks that it never sets. In general, the length of daylight at the North Pole is approximately 24 hours minus the length of the same day at the South Pole. If the North Pole gets 16 hours of daylight, the South Pole gets about 8 hours. If the North Pole gets 2 hours of daylight, the South Pole gets about 22. On the equinoxes, each pole gets 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night.
It varies from place to place. The further south you go, the shorter the daylight time is. Sydney gets just under 10 hours of daylight on the winter solstice.
Every point along the equator gets a little more than 12 hours of daylight every day.
24 hours is the total of daylight and night each day.During the year, the proportion of daylight depends on latitude and the seasons.However, on average, in a full year, everywhere gets 12 hours daylightand 12 hours night per 24 hours.
Antarctica starts to gets 24 hours of daylight between the Vernal equinox and the Autumn equinox. The days gradually lengthen until summertime. However, this does not mean continuous sunlight. That only happens during the southern hemisphere summer months when, for a period of time, the sun never actually sets below the horizon, but seems to circle around in the sky.
At both poles, beyond about 66 degrees of latitude, there is at least one 24-hour period without a sunset/ sunrise, annually. All of Antarctica lies beyond 66 degrees S, so the periods can be days, weeks or months without a sunset.. Predictably, everywhere on Antarctica experiences no sunset on mid-summer's day, which is December 21.
a little... Honolulu gets 10 hours and 50 minutes of daylight on the day of the winter solstice.
It depends on the precise location. The north pole, for example, gets zero.
it gets 12 hours 6 minutes of daylight (sunrise to sunset) but also an additiona period of time with indirect sunlight dawn to sunrise and sunset to dark (dusk) of about 1 hour
The north and south pole get the most daylight
Most of Alaska gets much more snow than most of Antarctica.
Every place on earth has the same number of daylight hours as any other placed on earth each year. The longer days of summer are compensated for EXACTLY by the shorter days of winter. Therefore EVERY PLACE ON EARTH gets 6 months of daylight and 6 months of night each year.
The average is always 12 hours a day. Depending on latitude, locations in the Northern Hemisphere get between 12 and 24 hours of daylight per day in the middle of the year (March to September) , while the Southern Hemisphere gets less than 12 hours. The situation is reversed from September to March (spring to fall in the Southern Hemisphere). At the North Pole and South Pole, it is daylight for 6 months and night for 6 months.
it is dry in Antarctica because it gets little precipitation and there's not much moisture
Like every continent, Antarctica gets light from the sun, the moon and the stars.
It depends how far North you are. Places only just North of the Equator get long daylight hours throughout the year, with little variation between Summer and Winter, but the further North you go the shorter the Winter daylight hours become. Hammerfest and Tromso, in the far North of Norway, get hardly any sun during the middle of winter and the North Pole gets none at all around December 21st.
Antarctica gets to around -1000 ;) degrees !!!!!???
in summer the earth is closer to the sun so it gets more daylight (sun). in winter the sun is further away from the sun so it gets less daylight.
Days of sunlight is not an accurate way to measure the amount of sunlight that an area gets. Typically, an area will be described with the amount of hours of daylight per day that it has, and currently in October, there are about 12 hours of sunlight.?æ
