There was no trace of light until after 8am local time over the Verkhoyansk district in the north of Yakutia. Almost exactly a year ago – in July 2018 – there was another pitch black morning over three major areas of Yakutia, Eveno-Bytantaisky, Zhigansky and the same Verkhoyansky district. Darkness which had a yellow tinge lasted for over three hours and was followed by drop in air temperature. The territory impacted by the gloom was larger than Italy.
