Sunset Central Africa

Sunrise and sunset in the Central African Republic

Sunrise today: 5:31 h
Sunset today: 17:53 h
(Times for Bangui)

Times for sunrise and sunset in the Central African Republic won't differ much all over the year. The reason is the only fair proximity to the equator. So in summer the sun moves slightly to the north and in the winter slightly back to south, but without much change in the distance. E.g. in the Nordic countries of Europe the difference is much more extreme.

With up to approximately 12:20 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Bangui lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Bangui rises at 5:31. The early sunset at 17:53 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Where does the sun rise in the Central African Republic?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Central Africa is Obo in the region of Haut-Mbomou. There, the sun rises at 4:58 am and sets at 5:23 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Gamboula (Mambéré-Kadéï) at 6:06 pm.

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. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Bangui lies on the 4th degree of northern latitude and thus very close to the equator. While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Central Africa it only lasts an average of 23 minutes. Central Africa is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
