A Conundrum

July 15, 12:30 a.m.
Something I've been thinking about whenever I gaze out at the sun in the middle of the night ...

According to the National Research Council, the sun will set over Inuvik — for the first time in two months — on July 21 at 2:22 a.m. It will rise again 19 minutes later.

We know that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. So ... when it sets and rises in virtually the same spot on the horizon, is that east or west?

I thought that from there, everything was SOUTH!
