Sunrise and sunset in Burkina Faso

Sunrise today: 6:10 h
Sunset today: 17:39 h
(Times for Ouagadougou)
Sunrise and sunset in Burkina Faso do not differ significantly throughout the year. The reason for this is the proximity to the equator. Thus, the sun swings north in the middle of the year and south at the turn of the year, without moving too far away. In countries like Canada or Norway, however, the difference is much more extreme.
With up to approximately 12:50 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Ouagadougou lasts almost 13 hours.
During these days, the sun in Ouagadougou rises at 6:10. The early sunset at 17:39 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Where does the sun rise in Burkina Faso?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Burkina Faso is Diapaga in the region of Est. There, the sun rises at 5:56 am and sets at 5:27 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Sindou (Cascades) at 17:57.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon, causing sunset to last for a different duration. Ouagadougou lies on the 12th degree of northern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator.While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Burkina Faso, it lasts only an average of 24 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Ouagadougou, while in December it's 24 minutes.
