Sunrise and sunset in the Republic of the Congo

Times for sunrise and sunset in the Republic of the Congo 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 Dezember. In Juni a night in Brazzaville lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Brazzaville rises at 5:37. The early sunset at 17:51 makes the day currently a bit too short.
