Experts say the sun should have risen over the Arctic
nation's most westerly town, Ilulissat, yesterday, ending a month-and-a-half
of winter darkness.
But for the first time in history light began creeping over the horizon at
around 1pm on Tuesday - 48 hours ahead of the usual date of 13 January.
The mysterious sunrise has confused scientists, although it is believed the
most likely explanation is that it is down to the lower height of melting
icecaps allowing the sun's light to penetrate through earlier.
