Prayer Times

Bismillah ir Arahman ir Rahim

Salamu Alaikum!

I am confused about Prayer times. Do I observe it by eye, or stick to prayer schedule? Its very confusing to me. 

Another muslim that I know of, taught me tell the prayer times using a website that can tell you the degree of the sun's location in the sky. 

***Note*** I live in Alaska - the land of the midnight sun. 

So in the summer, -2degrees, the sun has been down  quite a bit. But in the winter time, its somewhat an accurate estimate. 

I am just very confused by it all. 

Shukran.

Also, many muslims here pray according to Mecca time, not the city we actually live in. 

Salam if you want to pray personally find nearest location prayer time to your region ,but if you want to do it in mosque with Jama't follow their timing.

i have no mosque that I can go to. only sunnis and Salafis here 

so you can choose Shia timing in nearest region that has a rational dawn & sunset  to yourself for calculating prayers times for example Swedish Shia muslims choose Mecca or Tehran for Fasting times.
