If the Christmas lights of town show now, I wish you were closer so you could see in better detail the great display put up by local businesses and the Downtown Association!

This webcam is mounted on the News-Miner (Fairbanks' one daily newspaper) building in Fairbanks, looking south toward the Chena River (just this side of the tall buildings) and the downtown area. After December 1, you should be able to see some of the Christmas lights which light up downtown each winter, courtesy of the Downtown Association and local merchants.

The street running across the foreground is Terminal Street, and the one on the left is Cushman Street. Also on the left is Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Straight ahead is the Key Bank building, with Springhill Suites hotel to its left. The fence in the foreground separates the News-Miner parking lot from Terminal Street. The strange square things sticking up from the fence (difficult to see at night) are electrical outlets, for plugging in your car’s various engine heaters when the temperature is below zero.

      In June, even though Fairbanks is below the Arctic Circle, the “midnight sun” can be apparent. Official sunrise on June 21 comes just before 3:00 a.m. Click here for “seeing is believing” proof. By contrast, December views show a low-flying sun hidden by buildings during most of the brief time it is above the horizon.
