I realize I may be out of luck on this one, but if anyone ever comes across a free open-content map source, or free open-content satellite image of Yakutsk, I'd really like to make a map for this article. If you happen to own a source for a map of Yakutsk, please consider licensing it under a CC-by-SA license, and contacting me so I can use it. A map is just about all this article needs to become a star! --Peter Talk 20:55, 23 August 2008 (EDT)

OSM now has the data for me to create the map, and I've found a website to help me place addresses [1]. This is going to be tough to make, but it will be worth it to star this article. --Peter Talk 14:36, 23 February 2011 (EST)
And remarkably, we now have maps for Yakutsk! Some more polishing, hunting down missing details, and fixing up a proper buy section, and this will be a star. --Peter Talk 21:36, 22 June 2011 (EDT)


Good article, but I have questions. It says 62 North, but "enjoy the White Nights when the sun never sets". I thought midnight sun was only above arctic circle, so 67 North. Also, why is there no mention of the Northern Lights? They would be lovely at that latitude, I think. Pashley 05:17, 11 November 2008 (EST)

Above 60 N or so, the sun does technically speaking set (going below the horizon), but there is still so much reflected light that it never gets dark -- hence White Nights. True Midnight Sun is, as you state, only above 67 N. Jpatokal 10:24, 11 November 2008 (EST)

Kolyma Highway[edit]

I recently hitch-hiked the length of the Kolyma highway, and I'm about to plunge forward and update/fix/write a LOT of information about this rather under-represented area of the world for wikitravel. If you have any questions, message me through my profile. With regards to this article, I think the section on 'the other road' is funny but not accurate, so will be fixing it first.
