Why do people like to have the sun for such long hours? For me the night is nice and relaxing. Where as daytime is all stress and being blinded by the blazing sun.
Exactly same thought. Conversely morning is like an "alarm clock". It needs to be quite bright, at least before 6am.

Not only does the sun provide too much heat but its stressful too.

I prefer sunsets before 5pm. Sunrises I don't mind early though. but The less sun the better.
So is Alaska my place to be?
Most of Alaska is western biased though, avg/equinox sunset is 8-9pm (solar noon up to 03:00 pm) with the daylight saving. I hate their timezone designation.

On the other thread you said you like 10:00 am solar noons. You've mentioned in other thread that your temp. in your fictional climate is -196c/-321f.

What's with you liking extremely extreme things?

Well, in Phoenix early sunset is a very great thing, 7pm with DST means 6pm without DST, in dry heat desert places it worth some cooldown.

It was cloudy at 5pm so it was darker, which is why I made that mistake.

In June the sun sets at 5:07pm on some days, ewww. You'd like that though.

Sure but the problem is the late sunrises, I like both early sunrise/set, the moderate/heavy (not mild) green area of the map I posted in post #52 above in this thread, not just early sunset

6 am sunrise and 9 pm sunset feels near perfect, IMO. Obviously can only happen in the midlatitude summer

Columbus OH is close, but if you like warmer winter weather, Nice France.

Also northwestern California, southwestern Oregon in June. If your sleep schedule with that sunrise/sunset is set to going to bed within an hour of sunset, you don't really get the night sky unless you purposefully stay up.
