That's a great article. But there appears to be a mistake. It says about
Little Diomede, "the sun did not reach its zenith until 3:20 p.m. during
the winter and 4:20 p.m. during the summer." I believe this should be 2:20
pm and 3:20 pm as Little Diomede, at around 170 is the equivalent of about
2.3 time zones west of the 135 deg meridian.
