sundown rituals in space

I'm writing a story set on a space station, and I'm trying to figure out how certain religious rituals would work. I know some Jewish (and Islamic?) rituals either begin or end at sundown, but what happens when "sundown" doesn't really apply?

I'm not sure how to *start* searching for this- googling "Jewish rituals in space" didn't help much. I also tried looking for information on what you'd do in Antarctica, what with the six-month night and all, but no dice.

edit: thank you all so much! I have a much better idea of how to deal with this now- you guys rock.
