Today's weather trivia: 27 December
1969: In 1931 the cargo ship S.S. Baychimo was trapped in ice in the
Beaufort Sea. The abandoned ship later became free and drifted through
blankets of fog and several storms in the western Arctic Ocean, for at least
38 years. Explorers, scientists, and Inuit reported many sightings. In 1969
some Inuit made the last sighting of "the ghost ship of the Arctic" between
Point Barrow and Icy Cape, Alaska.
